Costa Rica is implementing an ambitious curricular reform that emphasizes critical thinking instead of memorisation. It is also giving increased importance to the command of foreign languages and soft skills. This initiative has great promise as a means of engaging students as more active learners and ensuring they gain skills that are more relevant to society and the labour market.
The emphasis on problem solving and critical thinking is vital in a modern economy like ours, and reflects the kind of higher-level competences which should come to the forefront in upper secondary education, at a stage in learning which goes beyond basic skills.
Beyond the economic argument, critical thinking matters because it contributes to people's wellbeing and to democratize societies.
