First and foremost, schools should be independent. Whether they should also be agile is something to consider on a case-by-case basis. Agility is always welcome when it serves independence. Since “agile” is something of a corporate buzzword, if I heard the question “Can schools be agile?” with no other context, my first instinct would be to say “no”. There is too much push to turn education into a means to the end of employability and entrepreneurship and the like. Preserving the idea of learning for its own sake for future generations is of the utmost priority.
