A quote from Tom Peters website that bears thinking about. Increasingly, this is the world in which we find ourselves and the world our children must adapt. Now is a great time to rethink the curriculum.
“The new organization of society implied by the triumph of individual autonomy and the true equalization of opportunity based upon merit will lead to very great rewards for merit and great individual autonomy. This will leave individuals far more responsible for themselves that they have been accustomed to being during the industrial period. It will also reduce the unearned advantage in living standards that has been enjoyed by residents of advanced industrial societies throughout the twentieth century.” (Governor, Bank of England)
