15: Sarah Fitz-Claridge - Taking Children Seriously
Sarah Fitz-Claridge is a writer, coach and speaker with a fallibilist world view. She started the journal that became Taking Children Seriously in the early 1990s after being surprised by the heated audience reactions she was getting when talking about children. She has spoken all over the world about her educational philosophy, and you can find transcripts of some of her talks on her website.
