GUEST,Eliza BS: UK teachers emigrating (96* d) RE: BS: UK teachers emigrating 28 Feb 16

That's an interesting viewpoint Steve. I think you are saying that if today's conditions for teenagers are so different, we should probably re-jig the education system and the curriculum, and of course, ways that learning is achieved, in order to move with the times. I agree with you that youngsters nowadays have a massive amount of interaction going on with all the technology they're subject to, and social pressures.
I think if I were involved with this renaissance, I'd 'begin at the end' and look at employment and employers' requirements, then adjust the system to deliver an education which helped pupils to become confident and able in the modern workplace.
There is another side to education, equally important but rather more nebulous. I see it as instilling life skills, a love of knowledge and a broadening of experience, a rounding of a person's character and a development of innate ability. I think this side of it is down to all of us, parents, families, communities and organisations. Our young people are our joint responsibility. They should be prepared for participation in useful work and to contribute to society, but also prepared for a fulfilling and interesting life too.
Does what I have just written chime with your views at all?
