Here in North America the first level of choosing “representatives” to speak on a subject like the future of education would be those already in place as educators. In a sad way these people have no desire to study or implement change. They are settled into place with no desire to disturb things. It’s the fringe people and the not-quite-settled who generally are advocates and knowledgeable on future trends. But they have little voice and certainly aren’t picked to speak for established institutions.
I’m wondering if a voice from the outside, as one source of ideas for change, is not active in Egypt? Or is it the complications of adding the influence of colonialism that is also creating barriers? Overcoming one mindset that clings to the past is difficult enough. Overcoming a form of false history that is firmly in place makes it even harder.
