What is the “Whole Child” educational approach and what role can business leaders play as a stakeholder in education? This is the focus of discussion in the first episode of CED’s special series about early childhood education. Kai-leé Berke from Teaching Strategies explains that a whole child approach transitions away from a focus on narrowly defined academic achievement to one that incorporates a broader view of the skills and knowledge that all children must develop to achieve long-term success.
