INNOVATIVE THINKING: British Education Experts: ‘Empathy Must Be Integrated Into School Curriculum’

“A recent report entitled ‘Making Education Work’ urges the British government to introduce radical changes into the English education system. The independent advisory board emphasized the need for ‘team-working, emotional maturity, empathy, and other interpersonal skills,’ which, according to them, are ‘as important as the proficiency in English and Mathematics in ensuring young people’s employment prospects.'”

Yay! Celebrating this in the midst of what seems to me a narrow focus, ie, "employment prospects".
