A personal reflective statement about your philosophy of education

DESCRIPTION OF TASK – Even if we are not consciously aware of it, every teacher practitioner has their own version of a philosophy of education of practical theory that influences every decision they make. Usually these statements are personal, contextual, dynamic and context driven, and based on a unique mixture of beliefs, values, principles, rules, theories, research and so on. As a result your task is to develop and write a personal reflective statement about your own philosophy of education that is informed – as much as possible – by the following: the contribution of well-known educational philosophers and thinkers, relevant theories found within literature that may have been adopted and adapted, your own personal experiences and reflections from placement in a school.
