Dr. Keith Beasley My ethos in all activities is to acknowledge the individual spark for life in everything and everybody. This, I would suggest, is what is at the heart of the ‘inclusive’ agenda now seen as essential in all walks of life. Everybody has something to offer. The job of education (in whatever form) is to identify that something and to enable and encourage that spark to grow and develop. All too often I have found (often from bitter personal experience) that our inherent natures have been suppressed in early life or conditioned by the (old) norms of society. To undo such ‘stuff’, if sometimes painful, is essential if we are to free our hearts and mind to respond to the needs of the moment.
