U.N. global survey: Education top priority despite wealth

Of the more than 2 million people who responded to the “My World” survey, a United Nations project, two out of three identified education as their top priority. Topping the list of other priorities was better healthcare and an honest and responsive government. Bottoming the list are political freedoms, phone and Internet access, reliable energy at home, and action on climate change.

“Education has consistently been a top issue for people around the world, no matter their country, sex, age or socioeconomic status. This data backs up what the UN and experts have seen through related research and experience – that education is a key driver for development issues,” said Corinne Woods, director of the UN Millennium Campaign. The survey is an ongoing project using crowdsourcing to better understand global development issues and trends. Européennes : c’est quand même fou tout ce qui s’est passé avec le vote blanc.

Consensus decision-making

Consensus decision-making is a group decision-making process that seeks the consent of all participants. Consensus may be defined professionally as an acceptable resolution, one that can be supported, even if not the "favourite" of each individual. Consensus is defined by Merriam-Webster as, first, general agreement, and second, group solidarity of belief or sentiment.

It has its origin in the Latin word cōnsēnsus (agreement), which is from cōnsentiō meaning literally feel together.[1] It is used to describe both the decision and the process of reaching a decision.

Innova Design Solutions have chosen this time of education reforms to conduct research into the advantages of creating bespoke classrooms to fit the class’ needs. Intelligent interiors experts Innova Design Solutions have revealed the science behind designing and implementing a classroom that will engage the children and benefit their school performance.

Detailing how an ergonomic classroom can help improve a child’s attitude towards and aptitude for learning in a helpful infographic, Innova stress the importance of shaping the classroom for the children’s needs rather than adapting the learning process to the environment.
