Improving Education

Here is a nice article on improving education through competiton fromthe Natiaonl Journal.

And this is why I care:

The current wave of technology-driven advances in productivity (and, to a much smaller extent, outsourcing) is impinging for the first time on educated white-collar workers in services, as opposed to the skilled or semiskilled blue-collar workers who felt the brunt of earlier labor-saving innovation in manufacturing. Better schools are not going to deflect very much of that pressure, or to save very many of those jobs. What might make a difference is a completely different approach to the whole idea of education -- one that helps people to change course midcareer, and that does more than pay lip service to the idea of lifelong schooling. This would be worth discussing.

Hat-tip to Dr. Craig Newmark.
