Adrian Loo was at a meeting last week with primary school kids.
A parent himself, he wrote,
“I was asked by a P6 boy recently what I would do if I had a chance to change the education system – I looked at him squarely in the eye and told him I would do away with homework and let him study anything he wanted and make classrooms open so that he could meet the teacher more often.
He beamed and became a child again.
I could feel the weight fall off his shoulders.
We need to stop robbing our children of their childhood.”
