“Only 7% of the world has a bachelor degree” … This mind-blowing statistic is incredibly relevant for South Africans this week as we grapple with the challenges of the promise of “free education” and the role that a degree will play in shaping the lives of recently graduated matriculants.
In this TedX talk, Sergio Marrero talks about the latest trends in higher education, the impact of education debt on our society, and his/ his colleague’s startup’s journey to increase access to learning for all. On their journey, they uncovered trends revealing the degradation of the degree and identified technologies that are beginning to redefine our learning systems. Sergio shares how empowering early stage entrepreneurs hold the potential for increasing access to learning and opportunity for all.
