The concept of the “Best Practice” (BP)
The concept of the ”Best Practice” (BP) is not an indicator, which just sorts out the ”top-ten learning schools” in different countries. The BP is an indicator, which shows possibilities for different educational structures and ways to adopt the best practice in the cultural context of the world. It is impossible to just simply copy the school structure without considering the cultural context.
The BP is based on several comparison studies and represents the summary of analyses of different educational measurements (national and international, such as PISA, ROSE, IGCSE tests, Well-being surveys and etc.), comparison of different curricula, class management, teaching and learning strategies, well-being characteristics, and administrative structures.
The BP - indicator connects the best outcome of the learning. The comparison studies started in 2007 in Finland and Scotland by ILETS Group and continue to this day with the impact of the LET & Schooling Group VZW members.
The school is a fulcrum point for educational and societal change. Classrooms can only improve in a sustainable way if schools around them improve. Schools depend on the countries, the districts, and communities of which they are part. And sustainable communities, in turn, need viable schools for all of their children and learning opportunities for all of their adults.
The LET & Schooling Group VZW is not so much a separate place as a meeting ground for learning. It is dedicated to the idea that all are involved with it (individually and jointly) will be continually enhancing and expanding the participants’ awareness and capabilities.
The BP concept is the basis for the development of the educational philosophy and of the educational structures. The application of the BPS allows for a dynamic educational structure and the ability for change.
