Thing 2b: More Further Reading on Teacher Led Schools

I realize it’s been nearly a year since my last post. (My bad) The time it takes to write two other blogs, does take away from my ability to wax philosophical about the way formal education is going. I’ll be posting more on educational reform in the next few weeks. Anyway, by a happy coincidence I recently came across four articles on Teacher Led Schools (or the “flipped hierarchy”) that you might find of interest. Many thanks to Kim Farris-Berg.
