Work and Jobs Changed For Ever, So Now We Must Change Education

I wrote quite recently about how I saw the Brexit backlash, the rise of people like Donald Trump as an angry reaction from those who feel like the world changed – without their permission!

Seth Godin has summed up the situation very well in this blog post he published on Thursday;

He highlights that little is achieved by trying to fight or resist what is happening. Likewise,  bitterness and self pity are not routes to solutions.  However,  if those of us in education fail to change the way we prepare your people for adulthood there will be every justification for anger and bitterness in the future.  We cannot sit idly by just maintaining the status quo.
