Most people would tend to agree that the purpose of school is to prepare children for their adult life…but what sort of life is it preparing them for? And if we continue to prioritise expanding the brain over nurturing the rest of the being, what sort of childhood are we condemning them to?
These are some of the questions raised in a newly released book, ‘A New Paradigm of Education Rising’, co-authored by Sian Goodspeed, a former teacher and founder of local tuition business, Flying Start Tuition.
As you may well expect with her teaching background, Sian is passionate about bringing positive change to the education system. You may, however, be surprised to learn that Sian’s vision for the future of education is for there to be no schools at all!
Intrigued and want to know more? Well, now is your chance as Sian reveals her vision in ‘A New Paradigm of Education Rising’. The book is a collaboration with fourteen other inspiring authors from around the world and is the sequel to the international best-selling book ‘A New Paradigm of Education’.
Inside ‘A New Paradigm of Education Rising’ you will discover radical new ways of learning that support the whole child, offering valuable knowledge and tools around the themes of:
- Self-directed learning, home-schooling, flexi-schooling
- Green education and connection with nature
