Sir Paul Callaghan on how to educate New Zealanders for future prosperity

This presentation is fantastic and absolutely inspirational.  It's also a real eye-opener; New Zealanders really do need to get our heads out of the sand if we want our country to be one that we all want to live and prosper in.

The presentation isn't solely about education, in fact it only touches on the topic.  Nevertheless, Sir Paul does highlight these key ideas:

-  Tell the stories of job opportunities for New Zealand kids at home (Get kids and teachers visiting the smart businesses).
-  Significantly boost science and mathematics education in schools.
-  Build school programmes in entrepreneurship.
-  Boost university science and engineering capability.
