How to Break the Sound Barriers in Education

As many as two-thirds of children entering primary school today will not have the skills required to get a job by the time they graduate from high school. The impact will be worse for women, who already have less than two-thirds of the economic opportunity that men have.

We can no longer sit by and watch the future of our country’s greatest asset – young people – have their wings clipped even before they soar. Empowered Education is the clarion call for everyone concerned about this country’s economic stability to rise up and transform the system from the inside out.

Every educator, every leader, must possess the mindset to change themselves first and then change the system they are in, anticipate the future economic drivers of the community, and radically overhaul their approach in engaging teachers, parents, students, and the community at large in a new way. This will require all stakeholders in education and community leadership to lead differently.
