What does it mean to improve education by going beyond classrooms?
This article takes a look at how an typical school in Saitama, Japan runs its recess. Students are tasked to bring their own utensils, serve the food, clean up and recycle. Within such a short 45-minute break, they have learnt how to work together as a team, cleaning up their own space, taking care of the environment and being considerate to others.
The principal of the school mentions:...
"A 45-minute lunch period is considered as an educational period, same as math or reading."
Pisa can measure our students' ability in subjects, but behaviours like civic-mindedness should not be forgotten in parts of our education 🧠
