The Six-Lesson Schoolteacher, by John Taylor Gatto Call me Mr. Gatto, please. Twenty-six years ago, having nothing better to do, I tried my hand at schoolteaching.

Re-imagining education: from Gandhi’s grandson to a school without classrooms A few months ago, on a remote island off the coast of Stockholm, I met another Change Leader who has truly re-imagined learning for the 21st century. Following a tragic case of vandalism in which his school burnt down to the ground, principal Lennart Nilsson asked his local community what they wanted their new school to look like. Parents, policy makers, teachers and pupils collectively decided on a new kind of learning environment – rooted in the ‘real world’ and based on the natural ways children learn. Pupils work in mixed-aged teams of around 75 children and have sub-teams within that group. Instead of following lessons in classrooms, they create projects in flexible, open spaces. Depending on the task, they work with learners of their own age or get together with others who share the same interest.
