Finding the child, meeting the teacher

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.”
