This paper was originally prepared for the New Zealand Ministry of Education, the Education Council of Aotearoa and the IBE-UNESCO Project: Rethinking and Repositioning Curriculum in the 21st Century: A Global Paradigm Shift. Dr Alton-Lee responds to the call by IBE-UNESCO for transformative change in education, urging attention to evidence on how to achieve urgent goals for different kinds of outcome; both locally and globally. Action is a priority, she argues, but we must not invest in well-intentioned action that might lead to counterproductive outcomes. In the final section she highlights an innovation that accelerates improvement across simultaneous success trajectories for competences identified as critical by IBE-UNESCO.
