The Shift

The Aims Of Education

A capabilities approach to development will make wellbeing and freedom to live a decent human life the ultimate objective of the economy.

If this is accepted, then a national plan for development will recast the ecological frames of schooling to prepare learners for:

  • economic citizenship,
  • a borderless world,
  • the rise of a creative class,
  • cosmopolitanism,
  • and intellectual and moral freedom.
