Great to be here today, Spiffy! The main challenge the Transforming Education Summit is addressing is how we create a new social contract around education at a global level. There is a crisis there that has been going on for years which the pandemic deepened. This "new social contract" has a strong focus on the role of the Public Sector, and the commitments Heads of States and Ministers will take to address and tackle said crisis. This Summit isn't only about the Declaration, and the commitments, countries will sign, but it will also be a starting point to build a global movement for education, something we have seen with climate change but not with education.
Lara: Did you know that reports indicate that six out of ten students in developing countries do not reach the minimum levels of scientific literacy? This is true for both public and private schools. And 75% of educators do not feel qualified to teach the skills that the future of work requires (PISA 2018). At Hexar, we believe in creating a high-quality and motivating education, so that every child finds his or her passion and transforms the world through science and knowledge.
