Education and parenting are key to achieving fairer outcomes and levelling up our societies. But we are not preparing children and young people to become job-ready or life-ready, let alone world-ready, says education expert Sharath Jeevan.
So do our education system need an overhaul to ensure a fairer start for all children? Are measures to ensure accountability destroying teacher’s motivations and contributing to the retention crisis? And what can we do to support more positive, motivational parenting styles?
Motivational thinking and the principles of purpose, mastery and autonomy are key to answering these questions, believes Jeevan, as explored in his upcoming book Intrinsic: A manifesto to reignite our inner drive.
Sharath Jeevan, founder of STiR Education and Intrinsic Labs and Nesta's Mission Manager, A Fairer Start, Helen Wales, discussed how we can enable change in the education system and inspire a life-long love of learning.
