School of Success

  • David Ortiz / graphic design

David Ortiz’ (Graphic Design) graduation project portrays the higher education situation in the Netherlands: School of Success. Ortiz wanted to trigger a debate about the state of higher education. “The project focuses on the alarming state of education and the government’s announcements about big budget cuts. I have described the different players and want to show what the consequences could be for schools and students. What happens if a school’s only goal is to teach students specific skills related to productivity, instead of being a place where students can develop their knowledge and learn to think for themselves?”
