Education and Child Participation

From a session on Child Participation and Child Safety for Model School Principals, Telangana

One of the biggest fallacies of our system is that teachers underestimate the knowledge of children. When teachers and educators realize that children are not passive recipients of information, classrooms will change. – Isidore Phillips

Let discipline become the responsibility of children as much as that of the teacher. Share responsibility. Children are responsible. Children are intelligent. – Isidore Phillips


The problem is that our classrooms have become bankrupt. Teachers have stopped thinking. Let’s us change the way we think. – Isidore Phillips
