ONE OF THE BEST THAT I HAVE SEEN

On a number of counts


Comparisons such as in the above title are not always helpful and can even raise resentments. But surely they have  a place, and today I have been reminded of a presentation made in 2011 by conductor Éva Bugya, which is still one of the best illustrative contributions to the 'conductive literature' that I have read –


Training for classroom assistants 
Éva Bugya, conductor

With introduction and commentary:


Why 'one of the best'?


Because Eva writes a vivid, direct account of real classroom experience that shed sheds such a clear light upon Conductive Education. It is 'one the best' in a number of ways. For example:
  • as an account of the holistic (ecological) nature of Conductive Education
  • as a report of conductive inclusion in a school
  • as indication of what a 'conductive assistant' can achieve (written by a conductor who had once actually worked as a classroom assistant herself)
  • as example of potential benefits from conductive upbringing as much as direct pedagogy...
  • as reminder that upbringing is a matter for schools as much as for families
  • as encouragement to others
How much more accumulated experience and analysis is out there in the world of Conductive Education, unreported and therefore unshared? And what other treasures await only a little personal encouragement, mentoring and editing to transform the world's image and understanding of what Conductive Education really is and what it could contribute to the human good?
