4 The Story So Far ‘Curiouser and curiouser!’ cried AAIA


6 Racing to stand still? ‘ Well in our country,’said Alice, ‘you’d generally get somewhere else - if you ran very fast for a long time, as we’ve been doing.’ ‘A slow sort of country!’ said the Queen. Now, here, you see, it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that!’

12 Can the enabling process reinforce differences? To ignore or deny differences, or make a virtue out of treating all children the same is not a solution but a retreat from a solution What may be needed is a re-appraisal of the curriculum content, organisation and pedagogy for the whole class Susan Hart, 1992

13 Every Child Matters Please Don’t forget the Dormouse

14 In helping young people and ourselves to learn joyfully as well as effectively we must remember that the enabling devices of systems and procedures are just that – they are means which are to be judged by the quality of the human flourishing that they promote. An authentic personal response, a shared look of satisfaction, an honest show of disappointment, a hand on the shoulder, the dance of delight in the eyes, the laughter of shared error, the passion of interest or commitment – is, on occasions more powerful and more important than the rigours of the most refined of systems. Michael Fielding, 1994Developing Teachers, Developing Schools
