Millenial Education

Ask yourself this question: What are the most important factors of millenial education?

Education is a hugely important and complex topic and there are many important and "correct answers". However, just for once, can we keep it simple?

We already have the academics in place. Let's keep improving that aspect, for sure. In my opinion, real-life practioners and entrepreneurs is what Norwegian millenial education needs most.

Students need training not only from academians, but a balanced influence from "people who have done it" and know how the real world works. The balance between theory and practice is something I wish I myself had more of during my own schooling. What about you? Did you get that balance? What would have been different if you had been taught by both people who could provide theoretical knowledge as well as professionals with a sound record?

These days, Skien is considering the location of our high school. Some of the politicians seem to be completely off track! Klosterøya is an incredible opportunity to combine both hands-on expertise and "all the rest". What are they thinking?

Terje Klaussen said it well the other day, when interviewed by Varden: "The debate is without ambition"
