The educational emergency as identified by Benedict XVI and Pope Francis’ global educational pact demonstrate the indisputability of the enormous problem with instruction. This issue cannot be addressed without questioning the framework within which we operate for that is one of the reasons that has led us to where we are today.  The educational crisis is a form of poverty that can make us see things differently; instead, we need to abandon inertia, and consider the “it’s always been done this way” as a misunderstood conception of tradition. Moreover, we should view its ashes unworthy of veneration, but rather as a source of life-giving inspiration. Let us listen to the signs of the times, rather than curse them and blame them for the failures, which are largely our own.
