Imagine there’s no tension,

It’s easy if you try,

No reductionist thinking,

Not asking “how?”, but “why?”

Imagine all the trainees,

Preparing easily…


Imagine there’s no conflict,

It isn’t hard to do,

No ground for disagreement,

Between them and you,

Imagine all the trainees,

Seeing eye to eye…


You may say I’m a dreamer,

But I’m not the only one,

I hope someday you’ll join us,

And help make teacher training fun.


Imagine no prescription,

I wonder if you can,

no need for ritualistic teaching,

A sense that “yes, you can“,

Imagine all the trainees,

Growing their own way…


You may say I’m a dreamer,

And I guess that may be true,

But if you simplify your training,

Who knows what your trainees could do?


(After John Lennon, Imagine)
