Paul Richards recently earned his Ph.D. in Educational Psychology.
In this interview, he discusses the significance of having a supportive community when faced with children’s learning challenges. Accepting the notion that “everyone can learn” is the first hurdle to be overcome. He comments that Trinidad and Tobago’s educational system is not as bad as often described and points out the need to focus on the lowest 30th percentile of students to transform the system.
He also shares his opinion on personal wellness and the need to prioritize a person’s well-being and not wait for crises to occur.
