Working group moderated by Reed Kroloff, USA discussing the topic of "Learning environments - dificiency of resources".
Education is the key to overcoming poverty and enabling people to excel as citizens. Commonly confronted with a deficiency of means, educational systems have compromised on their objectives.
The requirements of schools and other educational institutions, whether public or private, are multi-layered. Needs range from acquiring common skills to vocational training, from health and social education, promoting awareness of the natural and built context to raising ethical standards.
