Goldie Hawn will work with Britain’s Conservative Party on new schooling techniques, with the possibility of opening a school with a difference in the UK.

The actress established The Hawn Foundation to promote “mindfulness training” in schools which – through breathing exercises – promotes social and emotional progress over academic testing.

“We are meeting to discuss how she might be able to help education here,” said Conservative education secretary Michael Gove. “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 marshalled and traditional football. Others will want something that is more flexible, more imaginative.”

“We need to rethink our whole approach to classroom education, integrating neuroscience with the latest social and emotional learning techniques,” added Hawn. “A peaceful, happy child is the first step towards a peaceful world.”
