Education in America

In the December 18th issue of Time, authors Claudia Wallis and Sonja Steptoe report on the recent findings from the New Commission on the Skills of the American Workforce, a bipartisan assembly of Education secretaries and business, government and assorted education leaders.

The article aims at focusing on not only "whether some fraction of our children get left behind but also whether an entire generation of kids will fail to make the grade in the global economy because they can't think their way through abstract problems, work in teams, distinguish good information from bad or speak a language other than English."
