“Creating an Ethic of Performance Learning“

We must help students build bridges between the classroom and the real world by

developing pathways for them to imagine, explore and experiment every day. We must

create an environment of Performance Learning, so that our students, as citizens of the

world will be better able to provide innovative solutions to the challenges of social

                                             change, economic disruptions, and technical advances.
