Creating Tomorrow's Schools Today: Education - Our Children - Their Futures

Available

Description

'It's time to focus on the needs of our children, not the whims of our politicians, to provide a way forward for a new landscape in education.'

Is our education system working? What future are we preparing our children for? What future do we NEED to prepare our children for? Are we at risk of failing a generation?

In this updated edition of renowned education speaker Richard Gerver's book we are faced with these worrying questions and many more regarding the schools our children are attending, the curriculum they are following and the testing system used to categorise them. In this rousing call for educational revolution, Richard argues passionately that we must fight harder for our children's futures and we must do it today!

Richard describes the strategies he used when he was brought in as head teacher to turn around Grange Primary school. It was there that he implemented his vision for a school system that caters for every child; a system that helps nurture self-confidence, self-worth, creativity, innovative thinking, team-working and communication skills - all key employability skills that children will need in the fast-moving world of technology and information they are growing up in.

Richard is now the second most successful education speaker in the world behind Sir Ken Robinson, who describes Richard as 'one of the clearest and most passionate voices for radical change in education' and wrote the foreword for this book. Richard has updated Creating Tomorrow's Schools Today based on his visits to schools on every continent, his conversations on education with teachers and industry-leading visionaries such as Steve Wozniak, and in the context of an education system that he fears is forgetting the future we need to prepare our children for.

Reforms, tweaks and new policies are not enough - a radical transformation is needed. If you read only one Education manifesto in the next year, this is it!
