Reclaiming the Freedom to Learn

"If we realize that the real world is the best classroom, that we should not have a separation between living and learning, then I think we could move towards a much better school system, a much better society where creativity, curiosity and passion are the most important things that we look to."
Nikhil Goyal is the author of One Size Does Not Fit All: A Student’s Assessment of School, by the Alternative Education Resource Organization. His work has appeared in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post and more. For his efforts in education, Goyal accepted the 2013 Freedom Flame Award. Past winners have included Dr. Martin Luther King and John Lewis.
Very passionate and clever for his young age.
