the world of education and parenting.

A new school is opening up and seeks British trained education staff.
They aim hopefully - given current circumstances - to open in Tenerife (Canary Islands) in September 2020.
"We have set ourselves the challenge of creating a school that will not only allow children the time and space they need to develop, but which will also encourage different ways of thinking about education and childhood. Ultimately, our mission is to create a school that values caring relationships based on trust, and makes heard the voices of children in all aspects of their education."
This is the baseline test handed to parents for reception children - tested age 4-5 in reception class in England. Alienating, useless, likely inaccurate (can 4-5 years do it right?) and lacking in any decent information that one might call educational. It says too little and what it does say is said badly. A good idea?
