Tænk hvis det danske uddannelsesystem kunne det her …april 19, 2007
Tænk hvis nedenstående citat kunne blive et slags motto for danske skoler og uddannelsesinstitutioner … hvad kunne det danske samfund så ikke udvikle sig til!
“I regard it as the foremost task of education to insure the survival of these qualities: an enterprising curiosity, an undefeatable spirit, tenacity in pursuit, readiness for sensible self denial, and above all, compassion.”
— Kurt Hahn
Kurt Hahn was a key figure in the development of experiential education. He was the founder of the the Atlantic College, the first United World College, the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, Gordonstoun, Outward Bound, and Salem. In addition, many other institutions, such as the Atlantic Challenge, the Kurt Hahn Trust, and Round Square, were initiated by others who were inspired by his ideas.
