A new mission for schools …

“The 10 jobs projected to be the most in-demand jobs in 2010 did not even exist in 2004. Thus, the new mission of schools must be to prepare students to work at jobs that do not yet exist, creating ideas and solutions for products and problems that have not yet been identified, using technologies that have not yet been invented.”

– Prof. Linda Darling-Hammond, Charles E. Ducommun Professor of Education, Stanford University, in the Straits Times, Aug 26 2009, p. A12.
