Give childhood back to children: if we want our offspring to have happy, productive and moral lives, we must allow more time for play, not less

Give childhood back to children: if we want our offspring to have happy, productive and moral lives, we must allow more time for play, not less | education | Scoop.it
I’m a research bio-psychologist with a PhD, so I’ve done lots of school. I’m a pretty good problem-solver, in my work and in the rest of my life, but that has little to do with the schooling I’ve had. I studied algebra, trig, calculus and various other maths in school, but I can’t recall ever facing a problem – even in my scientific research – that required those skills. What maths I’ve used was highly specialised and, as with most scientists, I learnt it on the job.

The Ashoka Community's curator insight, August 22, 2013 10:45 AM

Empathy has been proven to help students succeed inside and outside the classroom — whether looking at kids in the Bronx or students experiencing violence in their community in Colombia. Our responsibility as leaders of this change is to take the idea and run with it.
