For years I thought being strict was the only way

The personal journeys we’ve had with discipline, behaviour, punishment, strictness and education form how we approach them as educators, schools and education systems. If we are in positions of power – and when we work with young people we are – the effects of our actions can be vast. It is our responsibility to reflect an examine the practice we use in our schools and classrooms; are we using approaches that work? For whom? Where have they come from? What are their positive and negative effects?

In this week’s vlog , I reflect on and share my own story and invite you to do so too – we’d love to hear from you in the comments.
