As you outline DE themes can be integrated across the curriculum so it’s not as if we are asking teachers to take on a whole new subject. I agree that we should be embedding DE in all aspects of school life (Outside the classroom.) I also think there should be more joined up thinking around Development Education across all classes, a whole-school approach as the topics and themes are so important to explore in every class. DE helps students make sense of complex issues and needs to be active, reflective and interactive, encouraging empathy is a key part of this.
