Children who started school in 2019 may have to live and work in the 22nd century, on the jobs that don't exist yet, in physical as well as virtual environments, co-operating with people as well as robots and artificial intelligence.
The schools must create the environment where the learner can construct their core knowledge and skills, but most importantly obtain the ability and will to continue learning throughout life.

Therefore the schools must prepare community members for lifelong learning and aspire to create the learning and teaching environment that fosters learning which is
- emotionally satisfying
