ENTRY DESCRIPTION

Don't let years of effort in schools go to waste, get kids creating projects that have a meaningful impact on society and potentially bring schools greater income selling works.

A new approach to teaching with a redefined syllabus and method of assessing. Classroom activities and assignments can be based on real world briefs from businesses, not only guiding to teach kids how to solve real world problems but allowing the effort in the classroom to yield positive benefits for a society where schools are able to sell these works back to businesses. This, in turn, would allow schools to increase profits which enable them to create an even better educational environment for children. Whether it be research sent to a historical journal, a collection of short stories which can be published or even, the application of maths to help run a business, schools are an environment dripping with wasted intellectual and even physical resources. This model does not promote slave labour etc, it is simply re-guiding the work that is done in schools to have a real world impact in such a way that with no extra work, society benefits a great deal more, it is a win-win model.
