200,000 children were asked to draw their futures – their pictures suggest startling differences between UK children and the rest of the world. 😒

  1. My son wants to be the first person to set up a permanent moon base to see 3d printing efficiency and was inspired by Lego. He was told this is silly and the national curriculum is the way forward. The rigidity of the national curriculum and to much focus on semantic testing instead of child progression with this exposure to YouTube, etc (not always a bad thing) and nothing for kids in their mainstream this is what is going to happen. You don’t give kids access to the potential of their skills their not going to go for it.

  2. I wouldn’t say that wanting to be a footballer or YouTube star is showing lack of ambition – if anything it shows more ambition because very few will ever achieve it. What is more concerning is that I suspect (and I may be doing these kids a disfavour here) they see these choices as an easy way to make lots of money, whereas kids in developing countries appear to draw the connection between hard work and reward. Perhaps if the media were to stop bombarding us with stories about celebrities, our kids would have more inspirational goals.
