Schools must transform how they deliver the experience and purpose of learning if we are going to meet the demands of the changing the world.
Compulsory Education in the UK has a much more significant impact on our adult lives and our future than we think. Conventional schooling inhibits teachers and learners true potential. Instead, they both have to focus their attention on narrow interpretations of limited facts just to pass tests. Schools are not set up for teachers or learners individual creativity nor are they focused on community responsibility. Neither do they prepare us to know ourselves? Shamefully schools value control for control’s sake over preparing us for the realities of life, society, the planet, unemployment, voluntary work, the workplace, self-employment or entrepreneurship?
