The professional challenge this chapter addresses is that education systems swing from one political ideology to another when there are changes in power in the government and the colours of those in the chair change. Evidence from 23 Ground Work Case Studies from China, England, France, Israel (Arab perspective), Italy, Nigeria, Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland, Russia, United States (Higher Education perspective), Egypt, Finland, Greece, Israel (Jewish perspective), Japan, Kazakhstan, South Korea, Germany, Hungary, Guyana, India, Pakistan, and the United States (K-12 perspective) (Taysum et al., 2012, 2014, 2017) reveals moralism within a balance between a welfarist and liberalist state, is the responsibility of those in power, and ultimately those that dominate the economies when developing education policy and strategies for achieving social justice. A carefully explained knowledge to action strategy has the potential to empower commonalities in schools and education systems around the world to (1) balance welfarism and neo liberalism with (2) Taysum and Collins Ayanlaja’s Education Systems’ Framework for Leadership, Logic and Language for Happiness and Peace that assures all the kids are okay.
