What If the Purpose of Learning… Is Just to Learn?

Chan Soon Seng is the CEO of Teach For Malaysia. Soon Seng has been an educator and an education activist for some time now and has been attached with Teach For Malaysia for about a decade. As many might already know, Teach For Malaysia is an organisation that aims to fight education inequality and inequity and bridge the gap between the haves and the have nots. Soon Seng joins us to discuss his passion for education, what Teach For Malaysia constantly pushes for and why our philosophy of education needs to change.
