A-Z of Ethical Communication in Education: F is for Framing

Framing is the ability to see the same circumstances with a fresh eye enabling progression thought possible as a result. For example some questions to help reframe ethical awareness within education might be:

What if we did not assume all academies had the best interest of staff, students and the local community at heart?

What if we did not assume that emphasising progress and data collection made for a better learning experience?

What if we did not assume that punishment is a key driver for success after a transgressive action?

What if we did not assume that working at a fast pace led to better results?

What if we did not assume that the link between occupation health and supporting staff in need is being adequately and morally used by education settings?

What if we did not assume success is to be measured by job and salary?

What if we did not link learning directly to career?

What if we did not assume exams were necessary ?

What if we did not associate success with being white, male, able bodied and middle class?

What if we did not assume that education settings were compassionate?

What if we did not use hierarchy as a model?
