If I were the Minister for Education...

Here is my project to suggest ways for our education system to be the best it can be. I have a few ideas, which I’d love help fleshing out.

Yesterday a small group of teachers decided to host a webinar about the return to school on Thursday. In less than 24 hours, almost 3,500 teachers tuned in. I don't think it mattered what was said by the excellent speakers. This was a virtual show of solidarity standing together.

I have been to several webinars in the last year thanks to COVID19 and most of them will have an attendance of 30-40 people. For big things, you might bridge 1,000 people. 3,500 is astonishing.

You can watch the webinar here: bit.ly/35PrvoL but really it doesn't matter what the content of it was. Every single person at that talk took time on a Sunday evening to come together with one voice.

Organisations like the INTO, IPPN and others need to take note, not just of this webinar and its contents, but of the power of what can be done bringing people together online.

I think we witnessed the start of something tonight.
