Trevor Dolan was a school researcher with an interdisciplinary view of learning and school development. He questioned the views and emphasized the importance of always having scientific evidence for claims about phenomena in the school world. Trevor Dolan had a deep respect for teachers’ professionalism and possible positive impact on the student’s entire life. Who contributes to this now when Trevor Dolan is no longer there? Our friend and colleague in the teaching service of Trevor Dolan, passed away in February 2013. To honor his memory and make sure that his strong voice in the educational world should not be silent, we want to pay attention to the people who act in his spirit, challenge inveterate notions and stand up for each individual student’s right to learning.

Congratulations Ida Lenneman!
