Millennial parents want schools to teach their kids how to be creative, flexible, and have a global outlook. 

Dec 30 2021

Millennial parents want schools to teach their kids how to be creative, flexible, and have a global outlook. According to research from international school group Nord Anglia Education conducted in North America, China, the U.K., and Spain, Millennial parents want their children to learn these three skills while they’re in school, and are starting to value soft skills and personal attitudes above proficiency in academic subjects. Millennials have grown up in a time of “rapid change” and an “increasingly globalized world” that has shaped not only their lives, but the kind of education they want for their offspring. When respondents were asked to rate a series of qualities they would want in their kid’s school, the most popular answer was enabling students to be creative and innovative. Schools that promoted physical, emotional, and mental well-being, language learning, creative learning, and a “start-up” mentality were also highly-rated by Millennial parents. They also want schools to teach their kids to be adaptable, equip them with life skills, and help them gain social and emotional skills, such as managing conflict. But of course, academic achievement is important, too: Millennial parents want schools that help their students achieve the best academic results possible, though there is a “clear emphasis” on equipping kids with “more than just good grades” to help prepare them for life and the future workplace.
