The Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Education News Agency www.tageducanews.com , an independent source of reliable and objective news on education around the world, was launched today.
TAG Educa News Agency is the brainchild of Talal Abu-Ghazaleh, chairman of Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Organization (TAG-Org) who saw an urgent need to have a comprehensive and credible source to cover all education news and activities for students, education institutions and government entities.
According to Abu-Ghazaleh change in education is inevitable and opportunities for change and reform are tremendous.
"To some extent, change in education is inevitable and has been going on as new forms of teaching and learning have emerged to accommodate globalization and technological trends,” he said.
Abu-Ghazaleh stressed that much of the appeal of change originates in the judgment that the current educational systems have failed to address today’s challenges and the most pressing problems in our economy, society, industry, and environment.
“With advances in ICT technologies, education can be dramatically enhanced to support delivery to all citizens anytime and anywhere on earth. The creation of a wider educational infrastructure accessible to the globe at large has an amazing potential in its impact on enabling better education for all," he added.
The News Agency will act as a partner to all universities, schools and education outlets in covering their news and activities, link students with educational institutions and act as a dedicated source for information.
A team of journalists specialized in covering education news and activities will be running the news agency and will make sure that every aspect of education is covered from its original source in order to provide a trusted source for educators and students.
