Our children are our future and education is very close to my heart. Having children myself, I have found that their schooling has been incredibly frustrating and debilitating. Children’s lives are so important and our education system destroys their creativity, can make them depressed and moody and disengaged with their school, their parents and society.
It’s time to change our education system and make it enjoyable, fun and engaging, by allowing children to start school at 9.30am and finishing the day at 2.30pm. And if you take out playtime and lunch, it will mean that there will be 20 hours of teaching per week with a break after every 45 minute class and no homework. And children are very capable of teaching themselves with the technology that we now have to hand.
And children need to be taught about life, how life works, how to become a parent, how to open a bank account, how to apply for a mortgage, how to read a set of accounts, how to build a house, how to grow vegetables, how to play sports, how to work as a team, how to start a business, how to sing, how to dance. And that the parent’s participation should be encouraged and the school should be open for the whole of society to come and enjoy our children together.
