The English word “school” is derived from ancient Greek. The original Greek word  scholē was used to describe any ‘place of leisure’. Later, it was also used to describe a place where lectures were given. It’s interesting how closely linked the concepts of learning and leisure have always been.

When we get schools right, students and teachers are fully and meaningfully engaged – they have fun and they learn.
