Mäetaguse kool – a role model for others

Leave a comment

This is going to be a short post. I just wanted to record an article I read a couple of months ago about a school called Mäetaguse. The article, published in the teachers’ paper called Õpetajate Leht, was like music to my years.

The school seems to be doing so many things right from paying higher wages to teachers to enabling and encouraging some hardcore innovation in learning and teaching. Perhaps most notable is the huge emphasis on connecting disciplines to allow the development of a holistic worldview and more creativity. The teachers are happy, the children and parents are happy.

Of course, there is money involved but I believe this is exactly the kind of investment that pays off in the long term. Well done!
