Abstract: It’s now about time the conversation around positive education matured. After a decade I feel we are approaching an intersection within the positive education movement. Depending on which train, or, on which platform you are on. We appear to be either: stopping all stations, catching an express regular or on a one special event train! I argue that the potential of the positive education movement is being held back. We need to slow down the train, realign the positive education movement and clearly focusing our work on demonstrating the impact of activity within positive education rather the focus on what we have been doing. The question critical readers in the field should always ask is “where is the evidence of impact?” I am optimistic that with bold leadership we can do this within the next 5 years.
