Why do we need a global life skills test for school kids?

We all agree that our children, the young citizens of 21st century need a whole range of critical Life skills to engage, manage and lead their world. Most of the prevalent schooling curriculum across the world are primarily fact-based curriculum that do not provide any scope for young minds to acquire practical Life skills.

Research has conclusively proven that human brain can acquire practical life skills only during the hardwiring stage of the brain i.e, roughly between the ages of 6-16 years. And the first building block of acquiring Life Skills is to assess the current ‘Life Skills Quotient’ of the young minds. That is the precise reason why every school going child, across the world, from grade IV-XII should participate in ILSO and get started on the path of Skilling for the 21 st century. "
