Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
I want to change the perspective of the Greek education system. My country underestimates its youths and doesn't invest in them. Therefore a better system that emphasizes on the students will have an impact on the next generations. Young students need to understand how society works, the laws that all citizens have to follow and the rights we have.
It's all part of making a better world.
I believe that the changes I want to achieve will form a healthier environment for the next generations because education is the first base for a better society. The minute students graduate they have to know not only how to survive in our society, but how to build their lives and make changes they wish to see.
This is really going to help people.
The impact of my vision will be mainly felt by students. Especially to those that want to receive an education but due to the economic crisis and social problems they are dealing with The problem is even bigger for students that live in rural areas and schools are disorganised.
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
education will be focused on preparing the students for the real world
grades will not be the centre of the system
balance. Healthy mind with a healthy body.
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
higher numbers of high school graduates
higher numbers of students from rural areas and areas that suffer from the economic crisis
decreased percentages of criminal activities in the ages of 12-19
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
