Playing It Too Safe?

Description

Is an unwillingness to expose children to risk turning out adults lacking the entrepreneurial skills to manage risk and to cope with failure?

Krishnan Guru-Murthy explores the issue with a panel of experts including Yo! Sushi founder and Go4It patron, Simon Woodroffe, NAHT General Secretary, Mick Brookes, The Sun columnist Jon Gaunt, and Judith Hackitt, chief executive of the Health and Safety Executive.

With calls from business leaders and child welfare experts for children to be exposed to risk to help them cope with the realities of the modern world, the panel debates how schools can get the right balance between risk and protection.

The discussion, in front of a live audience, also covers the use of the internet, analytical skills, and where the curriculum should go from here.
