Three main areas of US education are the apprenticeship era, the universal-schooling era, and now the life-long learning era. We can compare these three eras looking at these components”
Each of these components of education have changed as our society changed. The question is not whether the components were bad or good for any era. We are now entering the life-long learning era because society is changing and the world is becoming more connected through the Internet. Schools will change because we cannot stop change. Society will demand it. I think we are living in the exact moment of change, and I believe we have a choice to make. Do we want to sit by and watch? or Do we want to have a voice and help lead?
