William DeJong:

smallbillThe new economy forces schools to change. The agrarian school responded to the agricultural economy, the current [school] (…) to the industrial revolution. I do not believe we have arrived at a school or education system that responds to our current and evolving economy.

Addition July 23, 2009:

: Too many classrooms are influenced by what he calls “agrarian and industrial society” that include the traditional rows of desks with teachers dictating from the front. He calls for learning environments that resemble a studio where people of different ages and skill sets come together to solve complex problems.

What did change in our education the last 8 years?
