Happy New Year everyone, I'm back! Throughout my teaching career I have maintained my brand of anarchism (Tolstoy and Paul Feyerabend) within my thoughts, if not always my actions in the classroom. I survived for 40 years, and now live on my pension. To what extent are we compromising our beliefs by teaching in state schools, or should we all (that is us anarchists) give it up, perhaps go private progressive, or just simply work in adventure playgrounds because of our interest in kids? I have to admit, even though I hold no regrets because I enjoyed every moment in the classroom, that perhaps I ought to have pulled out of state education and done something really radical. Any experiences, anyone?
