We are all born curious, but somewhere burdened by the current education system, this curiosity wanes. Moving on to the next class, getting admitted into university, and collecting certificates appear to be the passport for good life. Having spent our formative years complying and competing, we struggle when we are asked to innovate and collaborate.
Our current schooling was designed to fulfill the needs of The Industrial Age, to produce compliant workers using a rigid structure and defined guidelines. This system is inherently flawed in building the qualities of decision-making, creativity, collaboration, and leadership that are imperatives today.
Current Learning Spaces is a government run school in Hyakanuru, Karnataka within a community in Muthathi, Karnataka. Both villages are an hour-long drive from Mysore city. The Learning Spaces would cater to the villages nearby as well. These spaces are being built in association with Pratham, a leading NGO in India.
