?Preparing For an Unknown Future
SEPTEMBER 19, 2016
Our 4 million kinders will leave public school in 2029 having spent more than 16,000 hours of their lives doing mandatory classroom time, and if they are lucky, they will enter the job market sometime in the 2030s. If we continue on our current trajectory, they will come of age in a world filled with smart cities, embedded augmented reality, smart robots and revolutionary nanotech. That is because the current design of the school system is more than 100 years old.
