  • If the nation and lecturers are taking extra accountability for the values, attitudes and emotional responses of students, how will they discover ways to boost those characteristics for themselves?

  • If international views shift the focal point of schooling from studying in regards to the outdoor global to studying in regards to the self, what's its imaginative and prescient of social growth and belief of social change?
