Better Ways Change Needed

What if…young people designed their own learning?

The Australian school system has a lot of the same problems as ours does. And there as well as here, people are calling for change

The current system is clearly not working for a large number of students. Levels of disengagement within schools are high and increase as students pass through secondary school.

Megan O’Connell (Policy Program Director, Mitchell Institute, Victoria University) and Bill Lucas
(International adviser, Mitchell Institute, Victoria University) put forward their vision for how education could be. It looks a lot like self-directed learning and it sounds pretty great.
