Yesterday, education was the topic at Atelier Wonderful. Sandrine and Bertrand gave an overview of the art education in France, Delphine shared her experience as a 4th year art student. I gave a comparative overview of art schools in the United States and shared my experience as a guest lecturer at the Ho Chi Minh Fine Art University.
When asked if any in the audience were students, the reply was "Yes, but we consider ourselves artists." This is the life of the student. Hopeful and making things work however they can.
Unfortunately, I also read this in today's news.
Schoolgirl gang suicide
Five schoolgirls at the age of 13 in Co Nhue Secondary School in Tu Liem District, Hanoi took sleeping pills to suicide for bad study results on February 16, reported Tu Liem Police.
Five girls in the same grade caused frustration to their parents by their bad study results of the first semester in the grade 7.
We need to rethink educational success. We need to improve critical thinking and measuring improvement and knowledge in a new way.
