**Whats need to be done?**

- Funding children instead of schools. (How policy should be so that it improves teachers, student ratio needs to be thought of?)
- Reward real world problem solving through projects instead of marks and clearing the entrances, the mindset of just marks should be completely removed.
- Weed out takers and create a culture of producing more givers
