Singularity Academy's Educational Approach
On July 24, 2022, eighteen school principals from various provinces in China convened online to learn about Singularity Academy’s unique views on education transformation and psychology.
In the online lecture, Dr. Ying Zhang, the President of Singularity Academy, called attention to the existential crisis faced by the modern educational system, as student depression and failure rates continue to grow while education content becomes detached from the very purpose of education itself. The situation is particularly acute in Asia, where students generally face an existential crisis before mounting pressure.
A humanity-centered singularity education offers a way out. Dr. Zhang indicated that a system-wide reform should begin with the school principals in the audience, who should initiate reforms within their own “small institutions.”
Apart from the necessity to know child psychology & education psychology, Zhang advocated for reform within school staff to realize the potential of every teacher, bridging the widening gap between the purpose and content of education.
