I am in the K-12 education business. I want to be part of the transformation of education. However, there is one facet of our public education system that I want to preserve. A large part of what we do in public schools is mold democratic citizens. We don’t always succeed, but that, I believe, is our most important mission. We teach tolerance of differences; we teach democratic compromise; we teach accepting the decision of the majority; we teach behaving in certain ways, because it is best for the group. These goals top any academic or job skill one can name.. This should always remain the goal of public education.

There is a French Proverb that state “a society gets the educational system it deserves”. I agree with the previous post and with Jay Cross. The educational system that we know today was set up to create an active democractic citizen. However, the world has changed but the educational system has not. I’m a workplace learning professional in the financial services. In my last workshop, I told my learners that back in school, when you looked over at your fellow student’s paper that was called “cheating”. In the workplace, it is called team work and collaboration.
