Education is an essential ecosystem for any society. There are various research articles and philosophers’ views confirming that putting together the direct and indirect impact of any ecosystem, the Education ecosystem has the most critical impact on the society, country, and world at large.
There are many research and views confirming that the current education ecosystem is not even closer to the ideal ecosystem. Also, there are views that if we observe deeply, in certain ways it’s even causing negative impact on society. But it seems that in the absence of any other equally acceptable form of Education ecosystem, we are willingly or unwillingly continuing with the current form of the education system. There are various educational reforms that happened in the past and numerous educational reforms that are currently happening in different parts of the world. But if we look at the macro level, the global education system is more or less the same.
United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals 2030 talk about Quality Education for all. Though it seems that the current education ecosystem with policies and infrastructure, is not at all-sufficient to fulfill those goals.
This led to the realization that we need a Real Education Movement (#realeducationmovement) to develop Real Education Ecosystem.
What is Real Education
Against common perception of Education, which is limited to school and college qualification, Real Education is an umbrella term covering all aspects of learning, knowledge, human capabilities development for people of all ages. The purpose of Real Education is to empower every Individual to achieve desired growth in all aspects of life. Here are some “Principles of Real Education” which can further enhance the understanding of Real Education.
