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.
