This essay assumes the near certainty that the Pacific region will take primary leadership of the global economy in the near future and explores the implications for their education systems. It explores the historic insights that can be taken from the Atlantic's rise to global leadership and outlines the economic transformation over the last 50 years that has shifted leadership from the Atlantic to Pacific Asia. On this foundation, the authors lay out a new model for fostering innovation among individuals, teams, organisations and society as a whole. They recommend a combination of best practices in coherent reform of education systems together with the latest thinking on unlocking systemic innovation to produce the 'whole-system revolution' that will be required to inspire a generation and produce global leaders who are able to rise to the challenges of the 21st century. "This report highlights the challenges and opportunities that every education system around the world faces. May it facilitate an informed and productive dialogue on how we can better prepare our children for the future."
