Human beings are like raw diamonds: potential but the inherent beauty and value only emerge with a perfect cut. How well is formal education, as we know it today, doing in cutting human diamonds? Do we sparkle to our full potential? 

In this episode, GBSN CEO Dan LeCLair is in conversation With Dr. Wilfried Vanhonacker about his latest book, “Rough Diamonds”. Based on over 40 years in education around the world, Wilfried shares in the book and in this discussion some of his observations, questions, and reflections on formal education as we know it and have come to accept it. And In doing so, in Rough Diamonds provides a critical look at what formal education has morphed into. It paints according to Wilfried… a worrisome picture.
