Educating for tomorrow

As a headteacher and father I see many children disengaged from the education system. For many, formal schooling is a hindrance to their real learning. What should be providing them with core life skills and the tools for the future is turning many off that most important of human traits – learning. Education is a complex, uncertain and ever changing landscape that mirrors the world we live in.   We can’t use the tools of the past to give today’s learners the skills they need for tomorrow.
