Conversation with Nikhil Goyal about involving students in the educational reforms
About Nikhil Goyal
“For 16 years of people lives they are being boxed up in a system where they are never asked what they like to do and what their passions are. This needs to change.”- Nikhil Goyal
Named one of the "World Changers" for Dell #Inspire100, this 17-year-old high school student is an international speaker who has authored One Size Does Not Fit All: A Student's Assessment of School (Alternative Education Resource Organization). The book has appeared in journals such as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, The Globe and Mail, Huffington Post etc.
Unlike most high school students focussing on athletics, academics, and socializing, Nikhil Goyal aims at starting a Learning Revolution movement to shake up the American education system.
