Passion over results: Education expert
Parents should be encouraging their kids to follow their passions rather than focusing on a high score in a generic test, according to an education expert.
Yong Zhau is a Professor in the School of Education at the University of Kansas and is visiting Perth to share his incites into how we can best prepare our kids for the future.
