Jon Hutchinson - Another guy who has blocked me for giving my opinion.


Jon Hutchinson @jon_hutchinson_

His profile says he is a Dad. Director at the Reach Foundation. Co-founder @menoacademy. LSX Fellow w/ @newamerica. Chair of @qpacademy.  And he has 17.5K Followers

He tweeted the following on 18.2.2024

Twitter obviously emphasises the things that people disagree on in education, but I’m curious: what are the areas of almost complete consensus? What does (pretty much) everyone agree about regardless of ideological stance?

I then Tweeted as follows:

Luqman Michel @luqmanmichel

Where did you get this notion that Twitter emphasises the things that people disagree on?

I hardly get any views because I go against group-think.

If we get rid of the causes of why kids disengage from learning to read, we will reduce illiteracy.

And then I decided to respond to his question: ‘What are the areas of almost complete consensus?’

Replying to @jon_hutchinson_

Almost complete consensus? Many so-called educators agree that HFWs should not be rote memorised. No one has asked for the basis and they retweet such nonsense. LINK


Then I continued:

Luqman Michel @luqmanmichel

Almost complete consensus? Idiots say that learning 10 sounds of letters can get a kid to read 26,000 words.

See the number of so-called educators who reposted that tweet. LINK

Can't educators think anymore?

And then I saw the words – The post you are trying to reply to has been deleted or is not visible to you.

Then I noticed the words, ‘You are blocked.’

Why did Jon Hutchinson block me?  I thought I asked relevant questions?

Let us see what others at REACH organisation have to say. 

This is what their website says:

Our method

What we do

We connect with a young person, uncover what’s holding them back, and equip them with the tools to set goals, deal with conflict and stand up for what they believe in.

We give them the skills to navigate life’s challenges.

We do this for 40,000 young Australians every single year. Creating generations of confident, self-aware, passionate young people shaping the world to be a better place.

This is from Meno Academy.

Great teaching relies on great subject knowledge.

When we know a ton about what we're teaching we explain things better, ask better questions and show more enthusiasm.

But teachers are expected to know a lot.

Then why does Jon Hutchinson block others who question him or give their opinion.

Is there any wonder why Australia is where it is as far as education is concerned.
