What if our foundation of learning was one based on strengths of the individual, relationships and allowing each child to develop and progress at a pace that works for them?
Perhaps we wouldn’t see so many not fit, because we would have adaptable and flexible learning environments.
We would allow for individuals to get there, when they get there- when they are ready.
They would be in tune and know themselves, rather than spending years masking and complying and this being seen as an achievement, until they can’t do it anymore.
Success would be children learning that it is okay to be the way they are because they would be made to feel safe with positive relationships and go at their own pace.
Perhaps then we wouldn’t need to train parents and children to fit a system?
Perhaps we could stop with all the bloody fixing.
