New kind of schooling for society of future

“The Year 12 university entrance score system is far too narrow to measure student success accurately and is holding back our nation. Reducing a child’s whole education journey to a single metric has led our education system to become increasingly irrelevant.

We would begin the task of educating our children by asking what society needs of our future adults. Beyond being literate and numerate, we need them to be problem solvers, creative thinkers, curious, compassionate, resilient, self-aware, emotionally intelligent, hopeful, open-minded, great communicators, and respectful to themselves and others.”

James Gutteridge The Australian 1/1/2021
