Equipping future generations to shape a better world Who are we?

We should allow our children to be passionate from day one!

Thankyou to Yolande for sharing these thoughts on her education so far. Read other reactions to our animations here.

I worry about the current education system in England (where I live). I am sixteen, going on seventeen, have finished all of my GCSEs and am now working through A-levels. I find that now I’m in sixth form, I’m meeting more interesting people and learning about things that actually matter to me, but sixteen is FAR TOO LATE! We should allow our children to be passionate from day one! Don’t push them into roles so young; they’ve got adulthood for that. It’s easy to learn how to fit in, it’s harder to think outside the box.
