Communication, communication, communication

Photo to follow

A really fascinating day on Cayman Brac with the new Chief Education Officer, and her senior team simply telling teachers what was going to be the new future of education in the Cayman Islands. There was real explanation of each persons new role and how they were going to be available to support all teachers in improving learning opportunities for students. There was more interest and "buy in" than I think I have ever seen before. We need their commitment if we are to be as brave as we want to be in the transformation of education process. People often forget how essential real and continuous communication is to ensure teacher "buy in" - we forget at our peril.
