“Creating an Ethic of Performance Learning“

We must help students build bridges between the classroom and the real world by developing pathways for them to imagine, explore and experiment every day. We must create an environment of Performance Learning, so that our students, as citizens of the world will be better able to provide innovative solutions to the challenges of social change, economic disruptions, and technical advances
