The Educator's PLN

The personal learning network for educators

Why is academic curriculum still disconnected from the real needs of our communities?

How come we are not educating youth to create jobs rather than turn them out to find ones that may not out there? Why have youth working part time in a trade by the age of 14 and 80 % by the time they are 18? How come the last two years of college the student is not working part time in their profession?

How come every town does not have an Adult Learning Center to educate people out of poverty and support business or agriculture? How come students with ICT skills are not interning in local business helping them infuse technology and helping them grow?

This is part of large debate running on Linkedin
