The summit is Qatar Foundation’s flagship education forum, bringing together educators, experts, thought leaders, and decision makers from around the globe, todiscuss the future of education.

  • Can the latest discoveries in neuroscience make our kids smarter?
  • Should schools get rid of grading systems?
