Thank you for sharing this! You are, quite literally, my language.

As teachers, we need those in bureaucratic positions to understand the value of functional emotional, creative and critical literacy. We can teach it. Students can learn it. Learners can develop effective communication skills and become confident, flexible, compassionate individuals who feel a sense of belonging within a wider community. But, over reliance on tests and teaching for accountability, rather than intrinsic learning, makes it unnecessary complicated. Looking forward to the time when learning to learn is recognised and valued more than ticking boxes.
