Future of Education - Cross, Weinberger, Oehlert

Now there's a trio of pros I'd love to hang out with. Jay posts his slides, mp3, and more on his presentation at the Future of Education conference. I hope David and Mark do the same.

The Future of Education Conference

Mark's presentation description has this quote which is great for presentations...
Back in 2005, Bill Gates spoke to the National Governor’s Association. He said in part: “America’s high schools are obsolete. By obsolete, I don’t just mean that our high schools are broken, flawed, and under-funded — though a case could be made for every one of those points. By obsolete, I mean that our high schools — even when they’re working exactly as designed — cannot teach our kids what they need to know today.”

...because when BILL talks, people listen.
