Working with head teachers and teachers in rural and isolated areas makes you humble while at the same time angry! Humble because people with so little in terms of material possessions can offer so much to their students. Angry because those in authority living in urban areas may look down on rural dwellers with some disdain and limit their opportunities and restrict their development.
We need to educate those in authority that everyone has capacity to learn and develop and those in rural areas need a belief in themselves that they can learn well.
