17. I agree

The public school system was great for producing educated worker for an industrial society. It worked well, but is becoming obsolete. Children today enrolling in school will eventually be looking for work in jobs, and fields that haven't even been conceived of yet. And the type of rote memorization and long hours, common and praised, in Asian schools is becoming obsolete too. Its going to take a lot of far-sighted determination, money, risk and imagination to re-create schools for the 21st century.
