  • Andrew Fisher, Headmaster of a progressive independent school, asks us to challenge the politicising of education. Why do we accept the constant assessing of our children? Why do we deny it is damaging them? Instead, we blame the increase in anxiety and mental health problems on their lack of robustness and grit. With fourteen year’s experience as a Headmaster, five years as a Deputy Head and five as a boarding Housemaster, as well as twenty one as a father: I have learnt that I do not know as much as I would hope. I continue to love working with young people; they inspire, challenge and offer the hope we need for the future. I also like change, I like the energy one gets from new experiences, or bigger challenges, travel, innovation; teaching at its best is always about change. If you change how you teach, what you expect as an outcome, how to use the abilities and personalities in front of you then teaching is constantly changing. I am recognised for my communication skills, accessibility, empathy and for motivating those within my community. I am a highly committed person, who likes hard work, likes other people, loves working with children; I take great pride in my work and achievements. I have energy, integrity and a strong sense of my own humanity; I can laugh at myself. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
