Thank you so much for this podcast series. It is such a great service. I am making a midlife career change into teaching (I am a chiropractor and counsellor) and am making great use of your podcasts to bring me up to speed on the many facets of the profession I will soon be entering. I have listening to everything I can get my hands on by Eric Mazur whom you mentioned in one of your recent podcasts and I am so glad I discovered him through you.
In your interview with Tim Connell (episode #046) he mentioned a school in the UK that did this amazing turnaround in a three-year span. I know it is unhealthy to get too starry-eyed by the seemingly overnight successes that are out there, but I would still love to know a bit more about that school, its principal and what happened. Unfortunately no matter how many times I listen back to that part of the interview I still can’t quite make out the name of the school. Can you help me?
