The movement from a “sage-on-the-stage” to a “guide-on-the-side” approach to education doesn’t have a single description, but there’s one thing for sure: CBE emphasizes outcomes. There have been numerous attempts recently to cultivate a culture of equity and inclusion, as well as to prepare students to live beyond the school walls. However, the question remains, are all schools or even college institutions ready for competency-based curriculum? This will be a challenge for school leaders, but the end result will be better citizens who are more contributing to the community. This will enable all stakeholders to deliver personalized learning that prepares students for the next phase of their lives, whether it is college or the workplace. It could uphold the school’s culture, the teachers’ pedagogy, the community’s involvement, and the success of critical students in transforming their lives. Ultimately, they must be competent global citizens who own their own learning and are willing to share their experiences to influence better decisions.

Keywords: competency-based education, culture of equity, inclusion, personalized, outcomes, challenge, global citizens, stakeholders
