In the United States, to get the wheels going to fix the education system, it takes a village. You read that correctly. Ziyaad explores how the community and village approach to education could be the cure to America's ailing educational system.

Son of Mauritian immigrants, Ziyaad is a business and liberal arts student at the University of Texas. His experiences in both American and on the island have crafted his visions for rewriting the narrative of education on a local and global level.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
