Why is a radical shift in education needed?
It’s not working for the current generation.
What’s the evidence?
‘As for young people, the system is not working for most of them, either, 55% of youth feel that they’re education does not adequately prepare them for work.’ (McKinsey 2012).
‘Estimates put the costs of teacher attrition at $7.3 billion a year.’ ‘Already 46% of new teachers leave the profession within five years.’ (USA Forbes 2016).
‘A lack of talent adaptability among employees at corporations worldwide costs the global economy $150 billion annually,’ PwC and LinkedIn. (2014). ‘40% of employers say that lack of entry level skills is the reason for job vacancies’ (McKinsey 2012).
Despite this evidence, education maintains their output is satisfactory for global needs, ‘on the other hand 72% of educators believe their students are adequately prepared.’ (McKinsey 2012).
