If we took it seriously that we needed to prepare all students for the 21st century, what would school look like?

For starters, we may not be focused on tests or grades. We may instead help students tap their own intrinsic motivation and turn schools into opportunities to do projects and become increasingly more self-directed. We also may place an emphasis on social and emotional learning and collaboration. We also will work to include and involve businesses in the mentorship of young people.

David Rattray, president of Unite LA and executive vice president of education and workforce development at the LA Area Chamber of Commerce. In this Getting Smart podcast, Tom chats with David about workforce readiness, the need for continued lifelong learning and how schools must adapt to prepare young people for a new economy and a changing world.
