Molly Hurd’s perspectives on education have been developed out of her wide variety of teaching experiences in northern Quebec, rural Nova Scotia, Nigeria, Tanzania and Britain. She was a teacher and head teacher at Halifax Independent School for twenty years. She believes passionately that keeping children’s natural love of learning alive throughout their school years is the best thing a school can do for its students.
This book gives an account of an exceptional school in Halifax that has developed an approach to education that enables kids to truly love learning. Using the example of the Halifax Independent School, readers will find ideas big and small for how Canadian schools could do a better job of engaging, challenging and educating their students.
