Great snippet from an article in the latest Connecting You from Scripture Union

Children are open to spirituality and have a natural inclination for prayer, whether or not their parents have an active faith, says a new piece of research commissioned by Scripture Union as part of the Guardians of Ancora project.

The survey of children aged 8 to 12 years old and their parents backs up what SU have always known – that children have enquiring minds, big imaginations and an innate desire to reach out to God and, given the right stimulus, will do so naturally.

Data gathered from children’s use of the game will also feed into the largest ever longitudinal study of the faith development of 8 to 11 year olds, in turn helping Scripture Union to create more effective tools for Bible engagement with this age group.

One thought on “Exams are ruining teenagers’ lives”

  1. Is more coursework the solution to this problem?

    The one (probably only?) great advantage of the traditional exam is that the student has nowhere to hide: how much coursework is done either by copy and paste from Wikipedia or by third parties? But the exam culture is (blatantly) not producing people who are better educated, and it certainly doesn’t produce people that can deal with the real world outside.
