Transformation of Education, Finally
Decades later, we are finally at what I recognize as a tipping point for the transformation of public education. There has been an understanding for decades now that public schools were not keeping up to speed with the real world and that we could do better. Many of us felt a change was imminent back in the 90s, but the wheels of politically charged bureaucracies turn slowly, and the public was generally not concerned enough to take action. Many of us moved on because time was passing us by. Now is different, though. There is change afoot! I’m sure more years in development are required, but the decks are being cleared.
