Truth be told, I am very critical of the educational system as currently constructed. This is not to cast any aspersions on teachers, who I believe, largely, do an amazing job with the cards they are dealt.
The problem is that they are being dealt the wrong cards for the wrong game. And therein lies my issue. Because it isn't enough to say, "Let's tinker around the edges of the current system and call that progress."
The reality is, the entire system needs to be redesigned from almost the ground up in order to prepare our young people to deal with the challenges of the 21st Century.
A large part of the issue is the disconnect between policy makers and reality. By an large, education is administered by educators, who have been educated in the very system that they seek to maintain.
And that makes sense. Educators should be in charge of education.
But then there is a significant gap between the skills that students actually need in the "Real" world, and those they are being taught in school.
Here is the reality students will be faced with when they go into the world:
