All this while, I feel something is amiss with our current education system.
But I don’t know what it is. And I have problems describing the situation too.
Fortunately, I was introduced to this perfectly written article that sums up what I feel.
It struck a strong chord in me and what the author proposes should be the way our school’s future direction.
Needless to say, this article has stirred up a hot debate among parents and teachers.
Need something more to stir up your mind?
Okay, wish granted.
If you are the type of parent who thinks play is a waste of time for your child, then you must read this article by the same author:
I hope after reading these articles, you will let your child play more and let your child have more say in what he wants to learn.
Be warned that these two article are unbelievably long and you have to set aside some time to carefully read them for best results.
A cup of hot coffee would be nice too…
PS: My book “The Nonconformist’s Guide to Parenting” also emphasizes on the importance of play.
