The lack of change in education is frustrating

By Paul Watson

Eighteen years into the 21st Century we are still championing the need for educational change with little progress. The pace of such badly needed change is frustrating to say the least and to the detriment of students and indeed staff. Its time we got on with it!

For decades, if not longer, a variety of educational voices and hundreds of thousands of teachers across the globe have espoused time and time again that the industrial model of education needs significant change.

It is widely recognised this ‘one-size-fits-all model’ rarely meets the needs of the large majority of students.

This assembly line model has almost become mindless as students hop on the conveyor belt in Kindergarten and let it take them through to Year 12 where many just fall off when it stops, totally dejected or just thankful the ride is over.
