November news review

In this episode we talk about the national exam that takes over the whole of South Korea as the nation stands still to support its students, the Finnish schools that have moved to open plan learning (we like the idea of cooperative teaching but maybe not the noise and chaos that might ensue from having no walls..) and research that suggests where in the world teachers are the most respected.

Please rate and review us on iTunes, and get in touch - we love to hear what you think.
