This is really good, definitely worth the read. Particularly like Peter Thiel's point about the rising cost of education ("students don't get their money's worth"), Bill Gates' point that what we're going to succeed likely will be a lot different than what is currently offered ("this transformation will be phenomenal but only through a pretty brutal winnowing out process"), and Muhammad Yunus' claim that disruption will be forced by people outside of education ("What is education? ... What are we getting our young people ready for? ... It won't be done by current system. It will be done by people who have nothing to do with current system.")
Some great quotes from education panel in Davos: http://blogs.hbr.org/hbr/hbreditors/2013/01/eight_brilliant_minds_on_the_f.html
