Why we need to change

Why we need to change?

“We are currently preparing students for jobs

that don’t yet exist, using technologies that haven’t been invented, in order to solve problems we don’t even know are problems yet.”

“If we could teach our students one thing by the end of our time with them, it would be the ability to think, reason, and solve problems - not necessarily math problems, but life problems.”
