Future Education and Schools
The 12 steps to transform any school system

Educational futures include the following 12 steps:

  1. Schools as year-round community centers.
  2. Ask your customers first.
  3. Guarantee customer satisfaction.
  4. Cater to all intelligence traits and learning styles.
  5. Use the world's best teaching methods.
  6. Invest in your key resources: teachers.
  7. Make everyone a teacher as well as a student.
  8. Plan a four-part curriculum.
  9. Change the educational assessment system.
  10. Use tomorrow's technology in education.
  11. Use the entire community as an education resource.
  12. For everyone, the right to choose their type of education.

These 12 steps are outlined in detail by Gordon Dryden and Dr. Jeannette Vos in chapter 13 of The Learning Revolution, which was 1999's biggest-selling book, with almost 9 million copies sold in China alone.
The Singapore centralized education model. Every community has existing educational assets - land, buildings, teachers and administrators - and, like any great success story, the best educational achievements will come by starting with our assets, defining the vision, and creatively planning to link the two.

It also seems to us that any sensible vision should include these factors:

  • Lifelong continual learning will be a fact of life for everyone.
  • Inside that context, everyone should be encouraged to plan his or her own curriculum for life.
  • While there is no one right way to teach or learn, there are many techniques to enable anyone to learn faster, better, smarter. And an open-minded search for new ideas is central to tomorrow's world, and central to tomorrow's schools.
  • Every state or country also has different school-health relationships, administrative systems, teacher training programs. And, as in any other field, progress will often depend on the vision and drive of individual leaders: principals, teachers, parents, administrators and political leaders.
