Switching from traditional education in developing countries.
Marjorie, I couldnt agree with you more. But what I find depressing is that is there any way out of this educational mess. Who will take on the giants of testing and scores. It's like taking on the oil industry or akin to it anyway. I feel if I could work with the leaders of our industry, education, but like minded people like Sir Ken Robinson, we could take one country as a sample and write an education policy. We could even do one for a developed country and one for a developing country. The latter might be easier to get across as the interests are not so well entrenched. What do you think? One would have to work in a university environment so that one could have access to documents and other expertise that one would require.

Switching from traditional education in developing countries.
Thank you Jason. I couldn't agree with you more. I wish governments would recognise this premise and act on it. They are much more interested in the numbers of kids enrolled and don't give a damn about what happens after enroling or the high drop out rate. Most kids are dropping out due to boredom in the classroom with traditional methods of teaching and substandard teachers. A recipe for disaster for the future. I would love to spend time at a good universit and work with someone writing a liberal forward looking educational policy that does away with traditional methods of teaching and assessment.
