SHADE Session titled "Education System – A BLESSING or A CURSE" on Saturday, March 29, 2014

Education System – A BLESSING or A CURSE

It’s the time to reflect and rethink on our existing education system. What are we gaining and what are we loosing. Have we explored all key areas focusing on the child’s holistic development? What are some other models and how are those working? Do we need a U-Turn to optimize the child’s potential and to create a humanistic world?  Those who have similar questions pinching them day and night should attend this session and contribute.

If you feel UNEASE as a stakeholder of this education system, this session would help to increase your uneasiness and desire for change. Let’s reflect together and explore the possibilities.
