Not only in America I must say.

"The world doesn’t care what you know. What the world cares about is what you can do with what you know."

Most of our teachers are approaching retirement age. They went to university 25 - 30 years ago. There was no Internet, (basically) no computers and knowledge was to be found in encyclopedias. And by that I mean books. Real thick volumes. Teaching meant you as the teacher knew what was in the books and you told your students the important stuff.

Young people went to school, found a job and stayed there as long as possible sometimes decades. If you had a university diploma all was good and you were practically golden.

Nowadays? Today you need a whole different set of skills.That is, if you don't want to find yourself in the "unskilled" job market. And the specific set of skills changes every 12 to 18 months.

What should we do?

Well if I only knew :) but what Marzano Research proposes does seem quite smart.
