The 12 Sectors / Education

VISION for the Education Sector : People are free to pursue the type of learning that most appeals to their interests, passions, and needs.

Danger : State schools are failing and government mandated education forces everyone to learn the same and often useless material despite the unique interests and learning styles of each individual. The curriculum is designed more to serve the purposes of corporations and the government than those of the student.

Opportunity : Diverse, alternative schools and teaching models encourage critical thinking and creative expression among students and honor the choice of each individual.
