Responding to our National Education Crisis ft. Irvin Studin

By Stephen G Hurley

Host Stephen Hurley scans the education ecosystem, looking for the people and ideas that are starting to change the way we think about teaching, learning, schools and communities

Irvin Studin is Editor-in-Chief at Global Brief Magazine and President of the Centre for 21st Century Questions. His recent opinion piece in Canada’s Globe and Mail, “Canada needs a temporary Minister of Education”, calls all Canadians into a much deeper conversation about the nature of our current education crisis.

While not downplaying the importance of health and safety and the quality of learning environments, Irvin Studin suggests that Canadian students, and our wider society, suffer as the result of a lack of national vision for education, and someone in the country who goes to bed worrying about that deficit.
