Compulsory Education

In 1739, Denmark became the first nation to declare education not a privilege, but a compulsory waltz for all its young minds. Soon, a domino effect swept across Europe and into the eager arms of North America. But with this shift from right to responsibility, a thorny question sprouted: who gets to craft the curriculum, the grand symphony of knowledge our children learn? Should the state be the domineering conductor, or should parents hold the sheet music close, whispering its lessons?  This age-old debate continues to resonate, a discordant note in the otherwise harmonious pursuit of learning. Head over to the Laureates Blog to explore the fascinating melody of this ongoing conversation!
