Voices of Global Students + video (we students want change in education)

TEDxKL 2013 audition video : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gPPfL1fP0Sg&feature=youtu.be

As Sir Ken Robinson ended his talk by a quote from Benjamin Franklin "There are three sorts of people in the world: Those who are immovable, people who don't get, they don't want to get it, they're going to do anything about it. There are people who are movable, people who see the need for change and are prepared to listen to it. And there are people who move, people who make things happen." If you are reading this, you are one of the movables , if not those who move.

Since education is everyone's business, it is not enough that only educationist, politicians, teachers etc. to change our education, we need to involve everyone, including ourselves-- students. There has been an increase in consensus that education needs to be changed: it is about time that we students make our move, and let our voices be heard, which is the purpose of this page.

Regardless of where you are from, we all have unique yet similar stories on our experiences in the education system. Tell us where you are from, your experience in education, how it is and how it should be. If you are a former student, you may what you have learned in the outside world that should be taught in school.
