Disrupting the Traditional Global Education System

“I believe that the current education system is overdue for disruption. The systems that are there are just too slow, too expensive, and they can’t reach everyone.

“I also believe in the promise of what’s possible, which has been brought about by technology, and the fact that people are willing to use technology. It’s possible to put all knowledge and skills training online for free.”

Mike Feerick, speaking at the 2020 World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE).
