Key points mentioned:
We can only educate the nation with the nation. Therefore we need to mobilize the nation itself to this common vision of new world we have to live in.
And mobilize the society broader than the school itself to ensure that we can bring up our kids as a nation for the changing economy.
We must train teachers though we are still experimenting to find the right way to do it. We have not built enough experience in order to implement our desire for people to be 21st century citizens and live together.
The two landmark UNESCO publications, “Learning to Be” (or what is often referred to as the “Faure Report”), and “Learning: the Treasure Within” (or the “Delors report”), have been key references for international educational development. They have been influential in promoting an integrated and humanistic vision of lifelong learning supported by four pillars: learning to be, to know, to do, and to live together. As the international community takes stock of new developments and educational realities in the approach of the 2015 deadline for the Millennium Development Goals, it is timely to revisit the four pillars. This would also help to inform the current debates on the post-2015 international development and education agendas.
Addition to Pillars of education –
- learning to serve
- learning to live with the nature
- learning to create/innovate
Learning Science is not so much known to the education community and less known to policymakers.
We should have a minimum standard for everybody, but based on different countries’ condition we must have higher level standard.
