About this blog

I am a teacher living and working in Australia. Supported by my school, I have developed a love of educational research. I am now embarking upon a PhD. Nothing that I write or link to necessarily reflects or represents the views of my school or any other organisation with which I am associated.

  1. No, Yeats probably didn’t say it, but it has sufficient historical grounds to be “quoteworthy.” And besides, are you suggesting that the opposite is true? That education in fact IS the filling of a pail? And that if it’s misattributed to Yeats that it’s less true?
