The Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) is a worldwide study that tests 15 year olds in key subjects. Repeated every three years, the country which topped the 2015 PISA test was Singapore. Except perhaps Singapore and a few other countries like Finland, which has one of the highest high school graduation rates in Europe, almost all remaining countries of the world have a pedagogical system that somewhat lacks in quality, equity and efficiency.
Most educational systems solely pivot around grades, making a student’s educational journey a disoriented exercise of aimless "rattafication" (barren memorization) of the notes, which has no pragmatic relevance. Third world countries face miscarriage of justice in the form of gender inequality. Males are given unwarranted precedence over females when it comes to acquiring education. Single-gender education is still preferred in many parts of the world, resulting in unconfident and meek individuals. Furthermore, poverty has constricted the pipeline providing education. Those fortunate enough to bare educational expenses face marked disparity between the level of education provided in public and private sectors leading to an unhealthy divide in the population.
Just when the scene started to become darker than Vantablack and when educational reforms were required on a war footing, a bold initiative under the header “Education for Every Child” has taken its first steps. This project aims at overcoming all stumbling blocks of our current withering educational systems. Through this vision, every student of any grade in any part of the world would get free of cost unhindered access to optimal education.
One of the most interesting and perhaps the most effective way of learning is through tingling the visual pathway. This noble cause focuses on developing top of the line animated and illustrated videos coupled with the best available educational content.
This project has surpassed the seemingly impossible task of overcoming the language barrier. All of the animations would be dubbed into major languages of the world, making education accessible beyond the confines of international borders. Being free from copyrights, these videos will further the cause of free education for all.
The credibility of this undertaking can be gauged by the fact that it is absolutely non-profitable and the same approach was applied in the past for providing free Islamic education, which succeeded in benefiting millions of people all over the world.
Like an addict’s net casts wide, the negative effects of an uneducated person are not limited merely to that particular individual rather the people sharing day to day interactions with such a person are also caught up in the unforgiving whirlpool. To counter this, a team of young but experienced minds have started working in collaboration with all major educational non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and have the potential of making the dream of free education a reality.
