Since 2020, Big Change has been listening to the public, and especially young people, to understand the big changes they want to see in education.
Through hundreds of Big Education Conversations we have heard that young people, parents, teachers and employers all agree that now is the time to rethink the purpose of education and to change things for the better. There is growing consensus that we need a broader set of goals for education. Every group agrees that learning should be for life, not just exams.
These views are included in a new report from IPPR, Out of Kilter: How to rebalance our school system to work for people, economy and society, which builds upon significant insight and research undertaken to shape the policy agenda on education and learning over the next decade.
