From Dr. Wilfried R. Vanhonacker’s Rough Diamonds:
“The future of formal education is about enabling and supporting lifelong learning.”
Today, formal education is not focused on learning. Instead, it is focused on efficient delivery. It has become a machine that increasingly shuns its core responsibilities. Reality is about to hold it to account.
In the twenty-first century, technology is changing at an exponential pace. The knowledge that students gain during their formal education is becoming outdated more rapidly. Without a passion for learning and without a basis and support for continued learning, they can write off their future.
In Rough Diamonds, Dr. Wilfried R. Vanhonacker offers personal observations that challenge every aspect of formal education, all with the aim to inspire thoughts on a new paradigm for education and to amplify the momentum for change.
