Interesting piece here on how children's initial enthusiasm for secondary school wanes during the first two years.
What's caught my eye was the approach to remedying this proactively.
"It's about really making sure that pupils are resilient independent learners, able to react independently to feedback. All those things should be embedded,"
Now switch that focus on to the adults working in your organisation. What are you doing to help create resilient independent learners? I'd guess nothing...

Then of course how do you need to adapt if the future workforce includes far more resilient independent learners?
Lots to think on.
