Title: Lessons from Sports and the Arts
Author: Herbert, Susan
Abstract: This article notes that although the mathematicians, scientists, historians, etc. who created the knowledge that students study in the classroom confronted and responded to challenges and frustrations during their life, their struggles are not recorded and highlighted in the same way as those of sportsmen and artists. It suggests that with the formal school curricula so focused on the products of endeavours, and with little or no attention to the process of creation and to the human persons who create knowledge and strive for excellence, the informal lessons from the sportsmen and artists are invaluable. The paper concludes that we have to correct the mistakes of the past by creating more people-centred schools
