Modern Education - Producing Useful But Unhappy People?

While the Covid-19 pandemic is first and foremost a health crisis, the resulting effects have devastated the global economy and students' education for the years to come. But education was already due for a reckoning before the pandemic hit- was this just accelerating the inevitable? We speak to computer scientist and educational theorist Professor Sugata Mitra on the Breakfast Grille to discuss the short-term and long-term prospects of our global education system.
