Vision 2030

Wednesday 24 February 2021, 16:00 GMT

As plans are made for an independent fundamental review of our education system, how do we ensure that we give children and young people the best educational experience and outcomes in the future?

 “Should we be future-proofing an education system that doesn’t serve our children’s futures? Should we be building resilience in an education system that has been so difficult to reform? Instead of fixing, adapting and supporting a narrative of education that puts values in our children that we spend a lifetime to unlearn, how about changing the language altogether?” Her Excellency Sheikha Hind bint Hamad Al Thani, Vice Chairperson and CEO of the Qatar Foundation, ‘New Schools of Thought’ by The Economist Intelligence Unit, 4 May 2020
