Story of school playground...I found this very interesting and dishearting at the same time. In education (and Hattie research) there is only one thing that stands out among the rest in terms of effect, relationships. You can not fake or buy a relationship, so do schools think they can? Is it that they do not have the time to invest in making the relationships? Do they not know how to make a strong relationship? Are there other berrers that are not easly identified? These are questions I would like to pursue in the near future.
