Leaving Traditional Schooling Behind [VIDEO 3:18]

Traditionally public education has been dedicated to instilling in each student a well-rounded foundation of literature, math, science and citizenship. But today, living in a world where children grow up learning on-the-fly at their own pace connected to people and ideas from around the world, that traditional role of standardizing citizens with lowest common literacy skill sets is no longer meeting the needs of a global society and the global economy to which our children will contribute. Learning today needs to be authentic, applying skills and understandings that are relevant and meaningful to the individual student in question. This video captures the unfulfillment and frustration of young adults today, not having their needs met in their schools. The makers of this video want to get more people in this discussion.
