A school is a busy place. There is much to achieve. Much to do. Lots to say, write about, read about. But what if all this just stopped for a moment and silence prevailed? A space of nothing that is something. Would classrooms be better for learning? Would children and staff be happier?
I have been working with the material of silence for a while now as a researcher of educational theory and alternative practices. What is clear is that silence is the new improvement tool for schools. And it is free to use. No charge. Just a breath away for everyone.
