Our education institutions confront increasing pressure to educate all students towards much higher educational goals than ever before. This is driven by demands for a more engaged citizenry, for higher levels of knowledge and workforce skills, increased global educational and economic competition, and the need to prepare for the rapid societal changes brought about by technology.
