DAY 2

Every education system in the world is being reformed at the moment and it’s not enough. Reform is no use anymore, because that’s simply improving a broken model. What we need is not evolution, but a revolution in education.

DAY 3

We have this belief system right now which holds that all creativity and all productivity comes from groups. And the kids who prefer to work alone are seen as problem cases – even though introverts actually get better grades and are more knowledgeable, according to research.

DAY 4

We are getting our children through education by anaesthetising them. We should be doing the exact opposite: we shouldn’t be putting them to sleep, we should be waking them up to what is inside of themselves.

DAY 5

Those of us in education have held on to a business plan that we don’t care how many millions of young people fail, we’re going to continue to do the same thing that didn’t work. This business plan simply does not make any sense.

LAST DAY

Finland attributes a very high status to the teaching profession. They recognize that you can’t improve education if you don’t pick great people to teach and if you don’t keep giving them constant support and professional development.
