Is it possible to sustain and nurture a dream of a better education while one works in the current educational system? How can one sustain this dream while working in traditional institutions? How can this dream influence daily educational work? How can we create a program that does not divorce practice from theory? How to reach a consensus that to learn and to grow is a life long endeavor?
A new paradigm should conceive of education as a process where knowledge is created in an equal and just way for all. This constructivist paradigm could create a new compromise and motivation in teachers, students, parents, and all who are involved in the process.
At what level of the teaching process should this new paradigm begin to work?
