Governmentboards of education, community and staff must work hand in hand to reach that goal. We need to develop our communication, tolerance and be open to ideas of others to build better and stronger education system. 

Some of the major issues that need to be addressed urgently are  

1. MENTAL HEALTH

Children must be able to get the right support & resources that are needed for them to succeed. Help should be extended to the families as well. For it to work, the approach must be professional and holistic, and both must be given a fair chance. Children must have positive feedback. We should eliminate the negative connotation around mental health. Mental health hotlines should be utilized and kids should be encouraged to use them

2. We must have resilient and adequate resources for studentsfamily & staff.  
3. We want to keep kids at school while ensuring their health and safety
