Edge survey finds three quarters of 14-19 year olds want their education to be relevant, giving them the tools and skills they will need in their career
New research commissioned by the Edge Foundation over the summer found that 62% of 14 – 19-year-olds think that coronavirus has changed teaching and learning in schools forever. Many feel that their school or college needs to incorporate some of the ‘lessons from lockdown’ into the long term, with 84% of 14 – 19-year-olds having the opinion that schooling needs to be more flexible and adapt more quickly as a result of the pandemic and 64% thinking that the future of schooling should include both classroom and online learning. As the impacts of lockdown are felt in the wider economy, 70% of 14 – 19-year-olds think the education system needs to catch up with the real world and 76% want their education to be relevant, focused on giving them the tools and skills they will need in their career.
