I especially like the opening paragraph

“Dr. Tony Wagner, co-director of Harvard’sChange Leadership Group, when he presented about what he calls a “global achievement gap”. During the presentation, he outlined the 7 most important skills our students need to be successful in the world. His message is powerful and presents the case that we are even short-changing the most capable students – AP and honor students – because we’ve prepared them in the universal curriculum of ‘taking tests’. They are not able to reason, analyze, think…”

More to think about and more to work on. The journey never stops and the only constant is change. 🙂 It made me think… there are no easy answers only compliated never ending questions.
