The way we educate is not working for the majority. Most people in the world today get the chance to go to school but come out at the end of it, not ready or capable of doing what is expected of them. They have access to school, but not to an education that is useful. The result is the squandered potential of millions of people and an ever-widening gap between those that benefit from their education and those that don’t.
In Kenya and in many other countries, investment in education is the top priority for most individuals, families and even Government. They see education as the way through which they can break the cycle of poverty and fulfil their potential. But why is it that despite all the investment and effort, young people leave school unprepared for the world of work and life?
We believe that the answer to this question lies in transforming the way education is organised and delivered, and that educators and education institutions are at the heart of this transformation. One great teacher or one great school can mean the world in people’s lives.
