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.

About smichael920

Headteacher of a large primary school in North West England. Helping me to blur the distinction between work and home, I am also father of five, covering most phases of education thus giving me the lowdown from within and without. Education is about enjoying today and preparing for tomorrow. This can't be done using the tools of the past. View all posts by smichael920
