How can education change in the face of dramatic social change?

How can education change in the face of dramatic social change?

Education” is one of the most important factors in creating the future.

Society is changing dramatically as technology advances, but how should education change to cope with these changes?

As times change, so should the education we need, but the question of what to change and how to change it, and what is needed to do so, is too complex.

We would like to have a serious discussion on the future of education from various angles: whether public education should be changed, whether private education should do something about it, whether the government should implement policies, and whether parents should do something about it.
