Glad to know that your child is doing well at their school. But ever wondered ‘Is that all”? “ Are we preparing for what the future needs are?” Have you stepped back a bit and wondered that the education system hadn't changed much from your school days?
Before dwelling deep on these questions, let’s have a quick look at a recent study by McKinsey, Global Research Institute.
