13David Perkins Harvard Professor of Education “I think we need to think in terms of educating through the unknown for what might come up for ways of thinking about it for a large understanding that can help us cope the unexpected as well as the expected.

16Kirpal Singh Singapore Management University “We all are educating people either for yesterday, 80% of us, another 15%-16% are educating people for today but very few of us are looking at tomorrow. Because looking at tomorrow means you need to be creative. You have to use your imagination. You need to be able to take risks and say I think tomorrow is going to be like this.”
