Back-To-School …. Convergence-style August 21, 2006

Posted by Tom in Community, Education, Innovation.

The concepts of economic development and workforce development have crept into nearly every corner of our culture.  As evidence – the local Sunday newspaper’s “back-to-school” story, titled: “Educators experiment as globalization sets in – Goal: Students who can compete for jobs.”  (PDF version)

Kudos to northeast Indiana’s public school systems, who are incorporating the uncompromising world of No Child Left Behind into their larger world view – not the other way around.  The more schools that take this approach, one that combines rigor, relationship and relevance – the better.
