Inspiring quotes

I’ve been working with a new setting recently and in particular looking at the culture within the setting, highlighting the need to develop reciprocal relationships to support their development and was reminded of this quote from Carla Rinaldi.

The school sits within, and interacts with, it’s own cultural and social environment, and each protagonist – child, parent, teacher – brings his or her own values, interests, ideas and expertise, which are shared and respected by the others. (Rinaldi 2000)
