6 In Britain, teachers are for the most part too scattered and too busy to come together frequently for discussion. They require a medium through which they may readily communicate with one another, exchange experiences and learn the progress that is being made in method or in appliances in our own country and abroad. (Vol 1., No. 1, p. 1 of The Geographical Teacher) James Herbertson, GA President

7 Link to professional development... Dylan Wiliam

8 In British schools, Geography has ever been a dull and uninteresting subject. It has been a dreary recitation of names and statistics of no interest to the learner and of little use except, perhaps, in the sorting department of the Post Office. (Vol 1., No. 1, p.4 of The Geographical Teacher)
