The Future of Relationships in Schools

May 2 2017

Recently the British Government has identified that educating young people about relationships is incredibly important. This change is beginning to become a feature across all key stages to better equip young people to not only deal more effectively with the relationships they have but to also improve and strengthen them. Arguably, the best way to build a relationship is to spend time with that person. With large classes and busier timetables it is becoming more and more difficult for teachers to have a good understanding of the children that they teach. It's not uncommon for some teachers to only see a particular class once in a two week period! Time therefore is off the cards.

As a teacher I often wonder what is going on inside a child's head and I wish I could spend the time required to really understand how each individual child thinks and therefore reacts to a plethora of situations. I used to wonder why some children would be motivated when I set them a challenging task and why others found it too daunting. Why would some work hard and push themselves and others would simply seek any opportunity to avoid doing any work. I had wondered this until I began to employ Clarity 4Ds (C4D) methods and concepts within my teaching practice. By gaining a deep understanding of personality types and how these interact with each other, I am able to get more out of the children in my charge. The unprecedented problems though, really need more of an outside-the-box approach and I feel that more could be done.

C4D have a great opportunity to make a product specifically for today's school children. With a C4D application children could be empowered to better understand themselves and better understand the world and people around them. They would have the opportunity to integrate better into the school community and see visually that they are an important and critically part of a functioning whole. It would benefit children who suffer from low-self esteem and the physiological effects of it by giving them the much required boost. It would benefit children who are confident and often aspire to be leaders by making them more knowledgeable about those who are quieter and less vocal. C4D will be able to combat bullying, social cliques and general attitudes towards learning and school.

It's not just students who will benefit but the adults in the process too. Finally, teachers and parents would have the insightful data that would aid their understanding of each child as an individual, leading to what could only be described as more effective teaching and parenting. By using C4D schools would finally be able to offer that individual education that I believe every child deserves. Parents would understand their child on a different level and would have recommended strategies based on their child's personality type. By giving both parents and teachers a clear and level playing field, the C4D process will become a catalyst for improved Parent-Teacher communication and relationships.

Leaders of schools would too benefit. By investing in a C4D process they would unlock vital information about how their staff interact as a group and this can lead to advances in working relationships and decision making.

Of course, C4D is not the final answer to all of the problems faced by the education sector today and the more time passes the more I feel that this will never happen. (Even though the idealist in me wishes there was an easy solution) What C4D does though, is take us to a new height and gives us a platform and a catalyst on which we can improve relationships and lives.
