Taking Off into a Strong Headwind: Creating Truly Comprehensive, Human-Scale Secondary Education against the Prevailing Gales of Performativity
Taylor, David
FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, v59 n3 p373-380 2017
Stanley Park High was designated a Building Schools for the Future "One School Pathfinder" in 2006, and charged with being innovative in all aspects of schooling. This article, which prefaces a number of forthcoming contributions about interconnected practices at the school, focuses on the journey of reform, one that has rightly challenged the dominant and compliant view, and that embraces the progressive tradition of comprehensive education in order to unleash the innate creativity of our students and the professional capital of our teachers.
