Education Is Everyone's Business ; Lets Do Something About It. (+ TEDxKL audition video )

As Socrates quoted " The of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new . " In our context, for education to be changed , what is needed is a paradigm shift, in which education needs to be "reimagined".

Currently my friends and I are working on setting up a website that acts like a "voice" to students , where we'll be collecting testimonials on experiences in education. As for former students, they can share what they learned outside school, but should be taught in school. If you have any good idea for the name of the website , feel free to share.

Here's the video from the TEDxKL audition http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gPPfL1fP0Sg&feature=youtu.be . I really appreciate if you could share the link to your friends on facebook, twitter etc. as it really means a lot to me.

If you wish to be in touch , you can follow me on twitterhttps://twitter.com/FaizulZuraimi or send me an email faizulzuraimi@gmail.com

open letter to teachers:

For updates , do follow my blog here : faizulzuraimi.blogspot.com

The message I'm trying to convey is that everyone has the choice to make a difference in education , and the least you can do is by sharing the video to your friends :) lets do something about our education!

UPDATE: I've created a facebook page. Share your experiences in education system here. And don't forget to tell your friends to like this page too! https://www.facebook.com/voicesofglobalstudents

There are a very few models of thought and action we take for granted but in actuality you can get know then so well and make such a nuanced change that if you then reflect that insight in everything you do, (if it's good and true) you will be a success and a good influence on everyone you interact with (assuming they are not nuts). Intother words to win you don't have to scre a thousand points if the other gy scores none. Just be sure yours is comprehnsi
