Additionally, we feature opinions by specialists from academia, research, policymaking and the industry on the need to relook at education systems for the future. Amongst various experts, we hear from Andreas Schleicher, Director of Education and Skills and Special Advisor on Education Policy to the Secretary-General at the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD); Anneli Rautiainen from the Finnish National Agency for Education as well as Pratik Mehta, Head of Education & Skills, Microsoft India.
