Our own Br. Armin, being a former education minister of the Republic of the Philippines, attended the Atlantis Group meeting. The group delved into disruptions, trends, and the future of the education sector worldwide. As a concrete step, the group invited Romanian President, Klaus Iohannis, to champion and support of their advocacy.
The Atlantis Group members are select former education ministers and chiefs of state who are taking steps to address the challenges in global education and to inform a new generation of leaders and policy-makers in the field of education policy.
The group was created by the Varkey Foundation with a mission to contribute to the improvement of educational standards for children from socially disadvantaged categories, by increasing teaching at a global level. (Text & Photo: Mr. Jyron Raz)
