Besides preparing a person to create an economically good life, I believe one of the aims of the educational systems will be the cultivation of the awareness of personal responsibility, maintaining personal integrity, encouraging a sense of group awareness to create a world that works for everyone.
Teachers will therefore need to change their mentality. Instead of imparting what they have in themselves, bring it out in the students and let the student take responsibility for what he/she creates.
