WHY THE FLIP?

"Replacing  top-down  accountability  with bottom-  up support for  teachers."

Jelmer Evers and René Kneyber
Flip The System, 2015
WHAT THE FLIP?

Why do we continue to let politicians set the agenda for education?  

 

How much longer can teachers stand being overwrought by futile bureaucracy?

 

Are we doing the best for our pupils?

 

WE PROPOSE

FLIPPING THE SYSTEM OF INFLUENCE IN EDUCATION

 

GIVING TEACHERS PROFESSIONAL AGENCY OVER HOW THEY WORK

 

IMPROVING EDUCATION FROM THE INSIDE OUT

 

WHERE THE FLIP?

Read the original.

 

"Education is threatened

on a global scale by

forces of neoliberalism,

through high stakes

accountability,

privatization and a

destructive language of

learning.

 

In this book, teachers from around the world and other educational experts make the case to move away from this uneducational economic approach, to instead embrace a more humane, more democratic approach to education."
