Is education helping our kids grow or reach a dead-end?

Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

Education is an essential element to help our country develop in a healthy and democratic way.  Are our schools and our educational system helping our children become better citizens, more autonomous, independent and creative?  

Prof. Andrew Azzopardi will discuss this with his guests: Dr Michelle Attard Tonna, Deputy Dean at the Faculty of Education, Mario Mallia, a School Head, Dr Glorianne Borg Axisa, President of MAPSSS ((Maltese Association of Parents of State School Students), Paul Debono, St Benedict College Principal, Marco Bonnici, President at MUT (Malta Union of Teachers) and Psychologist Roberta Farrugia Debono. 

In the second part of the discussion, Minister for Education Dr Owen Bonnici and his opposition counterpart the Hon. Clyde Puli will be asked: Could it be that the world of schooling is different from the ‘real’ world? Could it be that there isn’t enough connection between what is happening in school and our communities?
