We need an education system that nurtures and develops imagination. A system that shifts the focus from one right answer toward generating possibilities, looking at things from multiple perspectives, solving problems, and
envisioning beautiful goals. By doing so, we
will be building a more open-minded,
hopeful, resilient generation.
