  • 8. Wagoner, Tony. The Global Achievement Gap: Why Even Out Best Schools Don’t Teach the New Survival Skills Our Children Need – and What We Can Do About It. Basic Books: 2008. p. 8,9
    “Increasingly in America today—and in other countries, as well—there are two achievement gaps in our education systems. The first of these—well-documented, widely discussed, and the focus of education reform efforts for the past decade or so—is the gap between the quality of schooling available for most poor and minority children—and the consequent disparity in results. The second one is the global achievement gap, as I’ve come to call it—the gap between what even our best suburban, urban, and rural public schools are teaching and testing versus what all students will need to succeed as learners, workers, and citizens in today’s global knowledge economy.

    (…continued) “As a country, we’ve been striving to close the first achievement gap by brining our poorest schools up to the standards of our middle-class schools—mainly through increased testing and greater accountability for progress, as measured by tests. However, it has become increasingly clear to me that even in these “good” schools, students are simply not learning the skills that matter most for the twenty-first century. Our system of public education—our curricula, teaching methods, and the tests we require students to take—were created in a different century for the needs of another era. They are hopelessly outdated.”
