This week we are joined by special guest Brendan Mitchell (C21_Teaching) who happened to be in our area.
John (@jfcatto) looks at the problems with a very prescribed set of standards to teach to and why we should move away from specific and universal standards full of tidbits of specific information.
Pete (@mr_van_w) considers different perspectives on the level of violence teachers can both expect and accept in the workplace.
