A call for CHARACTER, RESILIENCE & CREATIVITY to taught in Schools

Shadow education secretary Tristram Hunt is calling for character, creativity and resilience to be taught in England’s schools.

Mr Hunt believes that these qualities are vital components of a rounded education, for our kids, they are a good preparation for their careers and they will help in preparing our young ones for the economy of the future because they will be taught how to bounce back from setbacks.

According to the BBC, Mr Hunt wants teacher training colleges to include the teaching of resilience and character in their courses, and for schools to “use the curriculum freedoms at their disposal to embed character education and resilience across their curricula”.

What are your thoughts on this? Is it up to parents alone to teach their children these qualities or should the schools have their share of responsibility in this as well (i.e. a combined effort)?
