A more resilient education system is needed: Kumar – FBC News

The impact of climate change is real and there is a need to build a more resilient education system.

Education Minister Premila Kumar on day two of the Commonwealth Education Ministers Conference stressed that to achieve this, small island states must prioritize funding for education.

Kumar says the ministry is in the process of developing a 10-year education sector plan.

She adds that the plan will set priorities and engage government resources strategically to develop a more resilient education sector focused on innovation, sustainability and employability.

The Minister of Education says the sector needs to align with how the next generation wants to learn and integrate it into their curricula or the design of their education system.

Kumar says the current education system is teaching driven and it was essential to rethink education to make it more responsive to students as they grow up in a rapidly changing environment.
