The Learning Renaissance

Thought For The Day: Humanity


This is what happens when inhumanity is undertaken on an industrial scale for an ideological end.

As a child in the sixties, I had the firm belief that if I contributed to the charity appeals and collected for the Blue Peter appeals, poverty, hunger and illness could be eliminated in my lifetime.

I feel ashamed that my efforts as a child were not sustained enough and that my adult efforts have failed to have the desired impact. We need to be confronted with our failures in order to re-double our efforts.

‘For the triumph of evil, it is sufficient that good men do nothing.’  JS Mill


About educationalist04

I'm convinced we can, as a species, do much better than this if we set our minds to being much more positive and productive towards our fellow humans. The solution is learning - creating independent and autonomous learners who can problem solve, innovate and create a better more equitable and sustainable world. My books, Future Proof Your School and Re-Examining Success together with this blog, explore how better learning outcomes for all can be achieved.
