My name’s Will Stanton and I’ve dedicated my life to changing the education system.
I have created a new education model, called the Six Dimension Model, which aims to empower children in every way imaginable and to help them become who they are. The six dimensions of my education model are Self-Discovery, Inquiry, Sustainability, Innovation, Communication, and Empathy. All six pillars are treated equally within this model and serve to provide a more holistic system than the current pyramidal structure of education — which encourages competition, conformity and standardization, while also suppressing our children’s natural creativity and critical-thinking faculties.
Here is a break-down of each of the six dimensions:
Self-Discovery focuses on helping children become who they are, and aims to nurture each child’s passions and talents so that they may reach their highest potential as creators.
Inquiry is about teaching children how to think instead of what to think, how to discern information critically, and how to conduct their own investigations to find the answers they’re looking for.
Sustainability is about reconnecting with the Earth, immersing our children in nature, teaching them real life skills, getting them to become strong and resilient people, and showing them how to look after their health and wellbeing.
Innovation is about encouraging students to think outside the box to come up with creative ideas and solutions, defying conventionality, and fostering collaboration instead of competition in the classroom.
Communication looks at children’s overall social development and literacy. It aims to teach them how to read and write effectively, how to cultivate healthy relationships, and how to manage their emotions in order to minimize conflict both internally and externally.
Empathy aims to show children the value of real human connection in their lives, by uniting students through a sense of community, encouraging acts of kindness, and adopting a holistic planetary philosophy.

I need your help!
I’m currently 3/4 of the way through writing the curriculum for the Six Dimension Model, and now I need your help to get it finished. I’m giving away a free ebook of my book, Education Revolution, to anyone who can help me find an expert in any of the following fields who is willing to volunteer to help complete the Six Dimension Model curriculum:
- Social and Emotional Learning
- Design and Technology
- Sex Education
- English as a Second Language (ESL)
- Quantum Physics
Once these seven areas are filled and the curriculum is complete, we can then start new schools all over the world, evolve existing schools, and give homeschooling parents everything they need to empower their children like never before.
Here’s to bringing in the new education paradigm!
Something is very wrong with our education system. Children are being told what to think when we should be teaching them how to think. Schools are places of indoctrination when they should be places of inspiration. Creativity is being suppressed, not nurtured.
Education Revolution dares to call it out for what it is. Throughout his book, Stanton tackles a wide range of controversial issues from the desperate need for critical thinking in our schools to the alienation of our brilliant minds. He takes a step outside the box and looks at what education is really doing to future generations of human beings, and takes a solutions-based approach to these problems and offers up an entirely new model for education which he calls The Six Dimension Model.
The paradigm needs to change. Humanity must evolve…
Education Revolution is available here on Amazon.
