Gulf News – Article Number One

Following my interview, published a couple of weeks ago, I was invited to write a series of 7 weekly articles for the Gulf News newspaper Education Supplement looking at various aspects related to education today.

The first of those articles was published today. Here it is. I would love to hear what people think, reflections on the issues I’ve raised and what we do about them. From the second article onwards, I have been requested to tailor them specifically to older students (Class 9 and upwards), so that will reflect in the content of the other articles.

To read this, you will need to right click on the attachments, download them and then they should be readable:

  1. This article is one of the reasons why India misses an educator like you. You are so right – the people who have to take these decisions are *successful* products of the batch processing system. And that makes it harder for them. But hopefully, they are also intelligent enough to realise that the system may not work for everyone.
