Our current education system is no longer fit for purpose. It was designed and implemented during the Industrial Revolution of the 19th century for a very specific set of objectives. Objectives that are now obsolete. So why do we persist with the same rigid structure when it doesn't support or enhance the potential of children who in modern times, have a completely different landscape to navigate and tools to help them?
I look at why this might be the case and attempt to give an alternative education setup that would allow children to become genuine free thinkers and follow their passions through to a successful and fulfilling future. Not one where they become another member of the 9 to 5 hive.

Come and join the conversation, grab a drink and let's talk! Have you ever thought about how children's education could be rethought or enhanced? Do you think it's ok as it currently is? Let me know in the comments below!

Question: What is the most important focus or objective of modern education?
