  • Did you know?:

  • The 25% of the population in China with the highest IQ is greater than the population of North America

  • China has more kids on their school’s honor rolls than we have kids In North America

  • China will soon become the largest English speaking nation in the world


  • Did you know?:

  • That according to the US Department of Labour that today’s young learners will hold down between 10 and 14 jobs during their working life

  • That by the age of 38 that one of four of those workers will be at a job that they have held for less than a year

  • That the top 10 jobs today did not exist in 2004

  • That 1 out of 8 couples who married in 2008 met online

  • Did you know?:

  • That there will be more new information generated this year alone than has accumulated in the past 5000 years

  • New technical information is doubling every 2 years and that before the end of 2010 that rate will be doubling every 72 hours

  • That it is predicted that within 30 years there will be a supercomputer that will exceed the computation ability of the human race


So,

For all of us there can be only one objective:

Enhance Learning Opportunities for all students today


Change formula:

N + V + A > C&P

N = compelling NEED for change

V = VISION of a preferred future

A = belief in the ABILITY to change

Together these must be greater than:

C&P = COST & PAIN required for change
