Time to play

Good to see the NUT calling for more play: ‘Teachers want play-based learning’, though it’s sad that it has to be justified in terms of 'educational value'. Perhaps if children were regarded as more than future capital, they could be allowed to play just because (a) it’s fun and (b), dare I say it, Art.31 of the UN CRC gives them the right to do so. Strikes me that a lot more adults could do with a knowledge of how to have fun without nursing guilty suspicions that they should be doing something more productive.
