What do we want to see as innovations and best practices in education? What does our world
most need? The United Nations’ 2021 Human Rights Day declared the goal of “All Human, All
Equal.” How do we create curricula and practice that develop social, religious, and ethnic
cohesion, aiming toward the goal of equality in education for the world’s children and young
How do we deal with the sometimes-divisive and fraught topics of religious and historical
curricula in schools? (For example, in some countries, students and teachers are in danger of
breaking blasphemy laws by discussing these topics in the classroom.) How do we model open
discussion in learning history and religion, with non-stereotypical curricula and textbooks?
We believe these are profoundly important, even central questions, pertaining to education in
our time. We are excited to be discussing them on this Platform, presenting respectful inquiry
and discussion, based on evidentially-sound research.
