I personally found this article very interesting as I believe that development education is so important to me as a primary school teacher. I feel it is my job to ensure that children have the tools to critically analyse the world around them and to make each child feel that they can make a difference in the world relating to development education whether it is big or small.

Myself and my colleagues could educate young learners to understand the injustice around the world by getting children involved in a project that they are interested in. Each class could take on a different topic that is linked to development education such as gender, climate and migration. This would make it a whole school approach which would be very beneficial to everyone in the school community. Children can take ownership of their projects and teachers can allow them to have a voice and that everything they say will be listened too.
