In "What's the Point of School?: Rediscovering the Heart of Education ", Guy Claxton provides fascinating and convincing arguments relating to the limitations of education as we know it. This leads on to discussion about ways schooling and teaching need to be changed in order to prepare children to meet the challenges of the 21st century and a rapidly changing world."

Have a look the video: What's the Point of School?: Rediscovering the Heart of Education. Claxton provides more 'hope' for the existing system than some commentators. It could, however, be argued that having produced an excellent analysis and an excellent book about the limitations of the existing system his strategy for moving forward shows too much conservatism.
