Few people realise that the  Public Education system has been in operation for more than 150 years; this means that many grandchildren and great grandchildren are being put through a system which their grandparents went through. This cannot be the correct approach. The world has changed immeasurably.

What is needed is a system which encourages the ability in young people to think critically and not just Memorise, Repeat and Regurgitate the information deemed appropriate by the system. These skills do not encourage excellence in an ever competitive globalised environment. Indeed, studies have shown that where knowledge has been gained, unless used, it is often forgotten over time. 

Our young people learn differently and have different skill sets which can all contribute in some way to the world. Whilst curricula are redesigned, the testing system continues in its stagnant form. The competitive edge supposedly created remains difficult to see.

Instead of crowding students into a classroom with all of the difficulties this has historically created, we ask the government to consider alternative forms of education which are resourced and provide a positive future for young people.
