Education Education Education (minus sport & culture)

On September 25, 2014, in Education, Society, by Lyndon-Farnham

Our education system is not an embarrassment but we must improve. We need radical changes in the way the education system is run.

Education is the process by which society retains, and transmits its accumulated and growing knowledge, skills and values from one generation to another.  It is essential that our children leave school having achieved their maximum potential, academically and physically, to give them the best possible start in life. I am particularly keen to encourage schools to place more focus on life skills, vocational opportunity character development, good citizenship and the passing on of our own heritage and history.

In order to focus on its important key objectives I will propose that Education becomes a standalone department and that responsibility for Sport and Culture are moved into the Economic Development Department.

It is also time to give serious consideration to ring-fencing the education budget.
