CHALLENGES & OPPORTUNITIES


EDUCATION IS AT AN INFLECTION POINT

LESS THAN 40% OF HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS ARE ENGAGED

EDUCATION NEEDS TO BE RADICALLY RETHOUGHT PARTLY TO STOP THE BOREDOM, BUT MOSTLY TO BLOW THE LID OFF LEARNING, WHEREBY STUDENTS AND TEACHERS AS ACTIVE PARTNERS BECOME CAPTIVATED BY EDUCATION.
