Dynamic Schooling to Meet the Future
A public talk by Jack Petrash
It is impossible for us to know what the world will be like when today’s young children are ready to accept responsibility for our society and our planet. The only thing that we know for certain is that our children will inherit a world filled with complex problems and challenges. To meet the challenges of a rapidly changing world they will need to be strong, resilient, imaginative, determined, disciplined, kind, and clear thinking. Jack Petrash will explore how we can develop these essential qualities and instill in each child a reservoir of strength, the capacity for creative thinking, and a healthy sense of self.
