Epilogue

ByAndreas Schleicher

This conclusion presents some closing thoughts on the concepts discussed in the preceding chapters of this book. The book describes the educational success is no longer going to be about reproducing content knowledge, but about extrapolating from what we know and applying that knowledge creatively in novel situations, and about thinking across the boundaries of subject-matter disciplines. Educational success is no longer going to be about reproducing content knowledge, but about extrapolating from what the people know and applying that knowledge creatively in novel situations and about thinking across the boundaries of subject-matter disciplines. The book also describes that requires creating a teaching profession that owns its professional practice, and that puts teachers at the top and not the bottom of the pyramid. The growth model based on human potential can produce a more dynamic economy and inclusive society, since talent is far more equally distributed than opportunity and financial capital.
