Hacking Education (continued)

Hacking Education (continued): "5) The education system we currently have was built to train the industrial worker. As we move to an information driven society it is high time to question everything about the process by which we educate our society. That process and the systems that underlie it will look very different by the time our children's children are in school."

School is going to have to change dramatically if it wants to stay relevant, though in all likelihood they'll take the typical totalitarian route and kill all the homeschool and other options and make it mandatory, all-day, even more high-stakes and even less useful.
