INNOVATIVE THINKING: British Education Experts: 'Empathy Must Be Integrated Into School Curriculum'

INNOVATIVE THINKING: British Education Experts: 'Empathy Must Be Integrated Into School Curriculum' | Change world thoughts from 'academics' to 'ATTITUDES' - from small 'a' to capital 'A'. | Scoop.it

"A recent report entitled 'Making Education Work' urges the British government to introduce radical changes into the English education system. The independent advisory board emphasized the need for 'team-working, emotional maturity, empathy, and other interpersonal skills,' which, according to them, are 'as important as the proficiency in English and Mathematics in ensuring young people’s employment prospects.'"

Asit Ghosh's insight:

The schools should become development centres. Not only marks or academic talent, but also all kinds of talents should be encouraged and flourished. Good schools are not those which admit academic brilliants but can turn the weak into  strong. There is none who doesn't have talent; the development centre should create innovative curriculum which brings leash the dormant potential of the learner. The learning system sneers to be more exposure based rather than education based - first-hand not second-hand learning. unless the human mind is awakened to feel the spiritual one-ness, the conflict between communities,  countries and people cannot be resolved.

Evidence shows that being successful in a workplace is no longer about having a specific skill or knowledge set. Rather,  how well a person commands change is now the critical factor.

Yay!  Celebrating this in the midst of what seems to me a narrow focus, ie, "employment prospects".
