"There is a world of difference between `failing to learn' and `learning to fail'. The first is the chance - when you are with a really good teacher - to use it as a springboard for learning and a growing inner confidence that you can think for yourself and learning has no limits. The second however is another matter: if not caught quickly it becomes a self-fulfilling downward spiral sapping energy, commitment and confidence. Teachers wrestle with these complexities as they differently affect individual pupils on a daily basis. Alastair Arnott has thought continuously and deeply about these matters and shares his insights here in a way which will resonate with any thinking teacher and their school leaders."
