    Education is Failing and What You Can Do About It

    in Education

    1/3 of all pulbic high school grads are dropping out. Of those who graduate, nearly 70% desire to go onto college. Most never graduate. And according to recent reports college students are not learning.

    Things have changed in the world, especially in the last 15-20 years, and educaiton hasn't kept up. Besides, the model used for schools is over 200 years old, built for a different time, different economy, a different world. But even our colleges are failing: 

    “Colleges and universities, for all the benefits they bring, accomplish far less for their students than they should."

    “Many students graduate without being able to write well enough to satisfy their employers . . . reason clearly or perform competently in analyzing complex, non-technical problems” Derek Bok, former pres. Harvard

    “For most of the 1990s, the United States ranked last among 14 nations in raising college participation rates, with almost no increase during the decade” Patrick Callan, Pres. National Center for Higher Education and Public Policy

    "Industry has already largely adapted by turning to graduate schools and foreign sources, often regulating U.S. college graduates to routine non-manual occupationswithin firms”  Academically Adrift
