1.1 -The Need for a Mega-educational Benchmark in the 21st. Century.
The rapidity of change that is growing exponentially in our increasingly fuzzy existence requires mega-educational thinking and action to avoid the vestiges of past failed civilizations. While computers and robotics are increasingly deleting employment, our people search for an edge on life. It seems we are not entering a new age but are stepping backwards. We are in a new age that is doubling knowledge in geometric strides every four months. Many students learn more via the Internet, and their i-phones than their present schools. They are not being creative, but concrete in the political realms of an outdated media.
Primary problems in Education are as follows: 1. School Districts have become vast bureaucratic wastelands of administrative overhead expenditures and prime utilizers of social engineering rather than individualized classrooms that point to a career and new thought. 2. Textbooks are behind the times and few feature electronic or computer software to accompany enlightenment. 3. Curriculum stresses content rather than context and gestalt thought. 4. Discovery classrooms are few and far between. 5. Teachers are intellectually behind in their understanding of the needs of the marketplace. 6. What-if learning and future thought are needed to create future jobs and careers 7.Environ-critical expansion courses need to explore nanotechnology, virtual reality, artificial intelligence, space cosmic tech, oceanography, and many other new realms as new course offerings. 8. Values and morals need to be addressed via philosophy offerings.
