Paperback / Hardback

As cliched as it may sound, the world is rapidly changing. Preparing our children for the challenges that these changes may bring in their wake is non-negotiable. Preparation isn’t just about acquiring specific knowledge or skills, as we can’t predict the challenges ahead. What is essential is cultivating attitudes and mindsets that enable us to confront whatever obstacles lie ahead.

To Every Parent, To Every School addresses the challenges posed by our swiftly changing VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous) world. It goes beyond mere knowledge acquisition or curriculum revisions, which are necessary and continuous processes; nor is it about swapping topics in and out of curricula. While these adjustments are necessary, they aren’t sufficient. What is crucial is empowering our children with the capacity to anticipate and adapt to rapid changes as they occur.

The authors, both veteran educators and thought leaders, offer a variety of insights and action points making this book a valuable addition to the library of every parent and school.
