9781786070784: The Other Hundred Educators

The world of education is far more diverse and a great deal more interesting than the mainstream media would have us believe. The notion that our most valuable educators might have more to offer than entry to elite schools forever striving for the top of dubious rankings is all-too-rarely acknowledged in today’s society.

Questioning our conventional understanding, The Other Hundred Educators introduces the people who have pioneered unique ways of teaching that have changed the lives of many. In many cases they have made more profound and life-altering contributions to the expansion of human knowledge than any formal institution and yet you will never see their names at the top of so-called official rankings and league tables. From the Madrasah teachers of Tul Banat, Pakistan, who teach girls history, Arabic and the Qur’an to Alice Waters of the Edible Schoolyard project in America, who has been teaching health and nutrition by converting gardens and kitchens into classrooms, this is a celebration of 100 educators whose names you should know.
