After successfully bringing Buddhist techniques in school across America, Goldie Hawn
is set to use the same teachings in the U.K. and has won the support of Britain’s Conservative Party.
The ‘Death Becomes Her’ actress
runs educational charity The Hawn Foundation in the U.S., which teaches children the Buddhist technique of Mindfulness training, which instead of testing young people instead encourages them to make social and emotional progress, and it is hoped her ideas can be used to set up similar establishments in Britain..
Goldie said: “We need to rethink our whole approach to classroom education, integrating neuroscience with the latest social and emotional learning techniques.
“A peaceful, happy child is the first step towards a peaceful world.”
The 64-year-old star has been approached by the Conservative Party, who want her to help with their education policies if they are elected into power.
Conservative education secretary Michael Gove said: “We are meeting to discuss how she might be able to help education here.
“We need more new schools outside local authority control to challenge the bureaucratic monopoly. Some parents
would want a rigorous traditional academic education for their children with desks neatly marshaled and traditional football. Others will want something that is more flexible, more imaginative.”
