Should schools teach happiness?

An overhaul of the UK's education system now calls for the teaching of happiness...
A major review of the curriculum for England's primary schools suggests that six broad "areas of learning" could replace individual subjects.

The report from government adviser Sir Jim Rose wants to create a more flexible, less "overloaded" timetable.

It also calls for children to learn more about well-being, happiness and healthy living.

Sir Jim rejected this was "dumbing down" and said the changes reflected the skills most needed by children.
Of course this is dumbing down - students today can barely ready...and now we'll be teaching them how to be happy.
