Kate Hsu is a former teacher bringing about an education revolution in Taiwan by promoting self-directed education called Design for Change, or "DFC." This curriculum encourages students to find problems around them and take action against them. Kate believes that it imparts children with empathy, creativity, agency, and confidence. The program has allowed children in schools all over Taiwan to tackle over 800 problems. In 2019, the government officially approved "DFC" for use in textbooks.
