WE NEED FEWER EXAMS AND MORE WILDERNESS IN EDUCATION
Instead of pumping time and money into exams, we should focus on wellbeing and encouraging children to connect with the natural world.

Our kids now face constant assessment as politicians attempt to measure the success of schools. Children have become tiny cogs in a box-ticking government machine. Education has lost its way.
