Failure in Education
Carpenter, Peter
FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, v51 n1 p35-40 2009
In this article, it is argued that Kurt Hahn felt that it was important for children to experience 'failure' at times and to learn how to cope with it. If this is no longer desirable in the classroom, it ought to be possible to encourage children to be adventurous and "take risks" in a wide range of Outward Bound activities.
