A Revolution in Education Aſter graduating from Beijing University Affiliated High School, Jason Wang, 18, post- poned college for a year and visited the U.S. and Europe looking for the best practices in education. When he returned, he was in no hurry to enter college, but rather to devel- op the curriculum for Beijing’s Moonshot Academy, which opened in January with 30 students from 14 to 16 years old. Turning traditional methods of edu-


cation on its ear, Moonshot Academy stu- dents are accepted based on their learning ability, independent thinking skills and ca- pacity to turn ideas into action, rather than standardized test scores. Students learn through personalized experiences that enable them to practice and demonstrate core competencies to face the challenges of the future. “Research shows that by the age of 39,


today’s average high school graduate will have had nine different jobs, half of which have not been invented yet. Artificial intel- ligence has changed the playing field. We can’t keep educating kids in the same way,” says Nancy Riehle, executive director of the Creative Academic Network Scholastic Foundation that supports the academy.


Time’s Up Inspired by the January 2017 Women’s March, Jamie Margolin, a 16-year-old student at Seattle’s Holy Names Academy, launched Zero Hour, a movement for youth rights and action on climate change. Margolin and her teammates have formed a nationwide coalition that inspires and mobilizes students throughout the U.S. and in London, England. Tey took to the streets on July 21 to march for environ- mental justice as social justice. Zero Hour activities supporting


the Washington, D.C., march included meeting with nearly 40 federal lawmakers and presenting a manifesto of demands. It calls for governments and companies to take action on all climate change and environmental issues, including divesting from fossil fuels; increasing investment in


from Clinton, Connecticut; and Kibiriti Majuto, 20, of Charlottesville, Virginia, originally from the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Tey jointly developed the organization’s platform. “It’s our gener- ation that is going to be impacted the most by the effects of accelerated climate change that we are causing. Tis march is a launch. We’re not done,” says Margolin. At a pivotal time in which many the-


renewable energy; legislating strict carbon reduction targets; encouraging plant-based lifestyles; schooling youth on the impor- tance of reducing our carbon footprint; reducing excessive use of single-use plas- tic; ending rainforest deforestation; halting all animal cruelty; and preventing loss of biodiversity and species extinctions. Margolin and other Zero Hour mem-


bers agree, including Nadia Nazar, 16, an art director from Baltimore, Maryland; Zanagee Artis, 18, a logistics director


orize that our nation lacks the ability to coalesce around a great enterprise to solve existing problems, it appears that those doing the calculating have not factored in the millions of motivated young people as critical decision makers. It may be that their imagination, energetic drive, pas- sionate self-confidence and “no borders” cooperation paves the way to a brighter future for all. Not waiting for the torch to be passed,


young people are seizing it and acting now, no longer naively thinking that there will always be enough time tomorrow. Linda Sechrist is a senior staff writer
