The problem 👇
Although I believe we will have more and more choice as parents, they will likely still cost.
So what about the many families (possibly even the majority) who can't afford this type of education?
Well, they will have to continue relying on state education.
If the state education system continues to refuse change, then we could have a 2 tier system, more divisive than our current private/public divide.
Having worked in Kenya (about 13 years ago) I am reminded of the divide in their education system.
Towards a solution👇
It will be difficult to turn the ship around, but we have to try.
When I work with Senior Leadership Teams around the world we explore the 3 Box Solution to innovation.
In this strategic model the aim is to get an organisation to embrace Box 3.
Box 3 represents a radical form of innovation that looks to create the future.
It acknowledges that our Box 1 (the current way of doing things) can't be abandoned overnight.
So we create a microcosm of the organisation.
These microcosms, Box 3 groups, with freedom can be agile, can afford to fail and can incubate ideas with a view to scale.
This model can allow an old traditional system take advantage of the agility of a small and new system.
I believe the education system is in Box 1 with the lid shut.
Let's open the lid and reach out to Box 3.
For the sake of those who won't be able to afford new and radical options of education.
