Reject League Tables in Favour of Inspiration
Education is about inspiring people to learn and to be passionate about learning. But for too long, and in too many schools and countries around the world, a growing desire to reduce education into league tables has taken the joy out of learning. We, as educators, have a duty to bring inspiration back into the classroom.
It is this belief that has led Nord Anglia Education - a network of international schools that attracts some of the most academically gifted pupils from around the world - to collaborate with the world's leading performing arts school, The Juilliard School.
Our new collaboration - through which we have developed a new curriculum with Juilliard staff and alumni working closely with NAE staff - has launched this academic year. And it came about because of a shared worldview - that the performing arts play a powerful role in society, not least providing the opportunity to inspire a love of learning for young people across all subjects.
