NATD is founded on a commitment to developing a child-centred, humanising curriculum, with an internationalist perspective. We frame our endeavours with the question ‘what does the teacher need to do so that the child can be at home in the world?’
The brutal death of George Floyd at the hands of a police officer in America, the impact of Covid 19, and the mismanagement of national exam results in England have all reminded us of the systemic racism at work here.
We stand in solidarity with black teachers and education workers and black communities. We renew our commitment to developing a Living Curriculum that is needed now more than ever; an education that meets the needs of our young people.
