Learning Curve August 2020

There was such a resounding response to the statement Every Child Can Learn that we got many more articles than we had expected, to confirm, if confirmation were needed, that yes, indeed, children can learn and do learn, provided they get the encouragement, support, respect and dignity that is due to them during the process and after. This led to the creation of this, the second part, devoted to the topic. The varied ways in which learning is imparted cover a lot of ground, from the general to the particular. The one thing that comes through in this issue, as in Part 1, is that it is all about children learning and enjoying themselves in the process, rather than acquiring a formal education. Learning self-belief, being valued, getting the required support and reassurance that one does not have to change in order to acquire another’s ideas are all learning- enhancing experiences. Retaining one’s individuality, including in styles of learning, is perfectly acceptable. These and other aspects are discussed in this issue.
