'What we emphasise in education is generally what we get. When we emphasise achievement above all else, then we are likely to produce achievement above all else. High achievement is desirable. But at what cost? When education becomes focussed on production - namely, evidence of demonstrable achievement, then
we have lost what it means to be educated...
Teaching and learning are not just about achievement or quality-assured products.They are about care, compassion, love, hope. Joy, passion, grace, relationship, and more ... They are about people and how we nurture and are nurtured on our learning journeys.'
