  2. 2. CRITICAL THINKING: WHEN EDUCATION FAILS Welcome  back  to  The  Generation  Edge  Series,  our   monthly  magazine  exploring  the  identity,  values,  and   lifestyle  of  the  post-­‐millennial  generation.  This  month   we  explore  Gen  Edge’s  critical  point  of  view  on   education  and  its  impact  on  their  future  and  the   future  of  the  world. Because  these  days  reading,  writing  and  arithmetic   don’t  add  up  to  anything... 03
  3. 3. In the U.S., 14% of new teachers resign by the end of their first year, 33% leave within their first 3 years, and almost 50% leave by their 5th year. 18 $292k50%Percentage of 17 year olds who do not have the required reading skills to hold down a manufacturing job in US. ‘If you think education is expensive, try ignorance.’- Arne Duncan, US Secretary of Education 23 2BILLION In the US, the amount of money spent each year on students who repeat a grade because they have reading problems. of 44%: 7,000: The number of US kids who drop out everyday. By the time you’ve read this page approximately 3 kids will have dropped out. (That’s 1 every 26 seconds). Amongst industrialized nations, US ranking of the quality and quantity of high school diplomas. The amount a single dropout costs US taxpayers over the course of their lifetime. Percent of dropouts under age 24 who are jobless. The unemployment rate of high school dropouts older than 25 is more than three times that of college graduates in US. In the UK, almost 8/10 students on free meals (key marker of poverty) - failed to get five good GCSEs, including maths and English.
  4. 4. unreliable dangerous impractical disparate THE REALITY TODAY ISN’T THAT GEN EDGE IS FAILING... GOING TO SCHOOL HAS NEVER BEEN MORE... The  quality  and  effectiveness  of  education  has  proven   to  be  the  most  direct  and  signi8icant  factor  that  impacts   a  students  ability  to  succeed.    However,  today’s  Gen   Edge  population  is  facing  an  educational  landscape  that   is  devastatingly  divided  and  increasingly  unfocused  on   the  students  themselves. Turn  on  the  news  and  you  hear  everyone  from  average   parents  to  Louie  CK  to  Rush  Limbaugh  ferociously   debating  the  new  Common  Core  Curriculum  and  its   effectiveness.  In  the  UK,  the  teachers  union  has  been  in   an  uproar  over  the  loosening  of  standards  for  quali8ied   teachers.  Hardly  a  week  goes  by  when  a  headline  about   a  school  shooting,  district  closing  or  inappropriate   relationship  between  teachers  and  students  isn’t   plastered  on  the  front  page. Are  kids’  skills  today  really  all  that  different  or  are  they   simply  living  in  a  very  different  world? School  used  to  be  one  of  the  most  reliable  and  rock   steady  institutions,  but  just  like  big  business  and   government,  Gen  Edge  is  seeing  this  rock  crumble   along  with  the  rest. EDUCATION IS FAILING GENERATION
  5. 5. Text ‣ Recently in the UK, The National Union of Teachers threatened a nationwide strike over drastically increased workloads and lower pay ‣ Massive budget cuts are plaguing schools, especially those in inner-cities - Teachers spending personal dollars to fund labs; schools begging parents to donate supplies and time as classroom aids - Multi-disciplinary, arts, foreign language and physical ed cuts - Chicago Teachers Union 2+ week strike in 2012, largest in 25 years with 30,000 teachers “A  city's  schools  are  microcosms  of  the  city   itself:  they  run  head6irst  into  a  variety  of   issues  only  tangentially  related  to   education.” - Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune Reporter 'The  morale  of  the  profession  is  at  an  all  time  low.  Many  are  angry  at   what  is  happening  to  the  education  system.  Some  school  leaders  are   taking  early  retirement,  while  others  do  not  want  to  take  on   headships  because  of  the  pressure.  Those  of  us  in  education,  leaders   and  learners,  have  never  had  it  so  bad.” - Bernadette Hunter, National Association of Head Teachers, UK The  effects  of  national  economic   disparities  and  turmoil  have  trickled   down  to  our  schools  and  learning   institutions,  resulting  in  uncertain   stability.    For  Gen  Edge,  not  knowing  if  a   local  school  will  remain  open  next   semester  or  if  teachers  will  be  present   to  teach  a  lesson  has  become  an  all  to   typical  dinnertime  conversation.     Furthermore,  conventional    basics  can   no  longer  be  taken  for  granted  -­‐  i.e.   supplies,  resources,  and  extended   school  hours  for  additional  help.   UNRELIABLE CONTEXTUAL FACTORS
  6. 6. The  effects  of  national  economic   disparities  and  turmoil  have  trickled   down  to  our  schools  and  learning   institutions,  resulting  in  uncertain   stability.    For  Gen  Edge,  not  knowing  if  a   local  school  will  remain  open  next   semester  or  if  teachers  will  be  present   to  teach  a  lesson  has  become  an  all  to   typical  dinnertime  conversation.     Furthermore,  conventional    basics  can   no  longer  be  taken  for  granted  -­‐  i.e.   supplies,  resources,  and  extended   school  hours  for  additional  help.   UNRELIABLE Extrapolating from a survey of American high school students by the Centers for Disease Control, researchers found that bullied students who are threatened or injured by a weapon on school property were eight times more likely to then, carry a weapon to campus themselves. "It  wasn't  uncommon  a  generation  or  so   ago  for  the  doors  in  school  buildings  to  all   be  open,  and  anybody  could  enter  from   almost  anywhere." - Tom Gentzel, Executive Director of the National School Boards Association "Honestly,  it  makes  me  not  want  to  send  my  children  to  school.  It  makes   me  want  to  homeschool  my  daughter.    The  fact  that  someone  can  come  in   a  school  and  have  an  armed  weapon,  and  me  not  be  able  to  get  to  her  and   hold  her  and  comfort  her  because  I  don't  know  what's  going  on  with  her.         I  feel  that  maybe  in  my  care  maybe  she's  safer." - Mother of elementary student in Atlanta, GA CONTEXTUAL FACTORS Gen  Edge  have  come  of  age  in  a  post-­‐ Columbine  school  system,  where  the   image  of  schools  as  safe  and  secure   entities  has  been  shattered.    School   shootings  have  become  a  part  of  the   cultural  narrative  and  an  educational   backdrop  for  this  generation.    Where   generations  past  conducted  8ire  and   tornado  drills,  many  schools  now   conduct  “lockdown  drills”. But  the  perceived  dangers  are  not   limited  to  gun  violence.    Inappropriate   relationships  between  students  and   teachers  have  also  become   commonplace  for  this  generation,  and   issues  with  bullying  (both  cyber  and   physical)  are  coming  to  the  forefront  of   conversations  around  the  quality  and   safety  of  our  schools. DANGEROUS
  7. 7. Text The  effects  of  national  economic   disparities  and  turmoil  have  trickled   down  to  our  schools  and  learning   institutions,  resulting  in  uncertain   stability.    For  Gen  Edge,  not  knowing  if  a   local  school  will  remain  open  next   semester  or  if  teachers  will  be  present   to  teach  a  lesson  has  become  an  all  to   typical  dinnertime  conversation.     Furthermore,  conventional    basics  can   no  longer  be  taken  for  granted  -­‐  i.e.   supplies,  resources,  and  extended   school  hours  for  additional  help.   UNRELIABLE ‣ In 2013, the NAHT (National Association of Head teachers) in the UK passed a vote of ‘No Confidence’ in the governments education policies ‣ Teacher satisfaction has declined 23 percentage points since 2008, to the lowest level in 25 years. “A  vast  majority  of  teacher  preparation   programs  do  not  give  aspiring  teachers   adequate  return  on  their  investment  of   time  and  tuition  dollars.” - UK, National Council on Teacher Quality “We  should  be  preparing  people  for  a  world  that  is  dynamic,  demands   greater  6lexibility  and  is  about  enterprise  and  creativity.  I  believe  our   curriculum  and  assessment  should  mirror  those  conditions.  Therefore   the  planned  changes  (testing  mandates)...  are  a  retrograde  step  and  I   deplore  them.  I  can’t  believe  parents  will  want  their  children  to  be   assessed  exclusively  and  once  and  for  all  through  an  exam  at  the  end  of   a  course.”     - Rob Campbell, chairman of the National Association of Head teachers secondary schools committee, UK CONTEXTUAL FACTORS How  motivating  can  it  be  to  turn  on  the   TV  and  witness  teachers  picketing   because  their  school  has  been  shut   down?  Who  wants  to  have  their   classroom  and  lesson  plans   micromanaged  with  almost  all  autonomy   and  authority  stripped  away  in  favor  of   testing  criteria.    No  longer  are  teachers   free  to  alter  lesson  plans  to  cater  to  the   needs  of  the  student  -­‐  in  fact,  teachers   very  livelihood  has  a  direct  correlation   to  their  ability  to  navigate  the   bureaucratic  mine8ield  that  has  become   the  business  of  education.  Historically   schools  and  teachers  were  focused  on   fueling    a  child’s  potential  and  today   teachers  own  potential  is  limited  by  the   policies  far  above  their  ranks.  Not  only  is   education  increasingly  impractical  but   the  profession  doesn’t  look  like  such  a   smart  option  anymore  either. IMPRACTICAL
  8. 8. The  effects  of  national  economic   disparities  and  turmoil  have  trickled   down  to  our  schools  and  learning   institutions,  resulting  in  uncertain   stability.    For  Gen  Edge,  not  knowing  if  a   local  school  will  remain  open  next   semester  or  if  teachers  will  be  present   to  teach  a  lesson  has  become  an  all  to   typical  dinnertime  conversation.     Furthermore,  conventional    basics  can   no  longer  be  taken  for  granted  -­‐  i.e.   supplies,  resources,  and  extended   school  hours  for  additional  help.   UNRELIABLE ‣ Language barriers - 54 percent of all teachers have limited English proficient (LEP) students in their classrooms, yet only one-fifth of teachers feel prepared to serve them ‣ Academic Readiness - In the fourth grade, 77 percent of children in urban high-poverty schools are reading "below basic" on the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) ‣ Culture Shock - Thanks to urbanization and the rapidly changing face of Americans, many teachers today are looking at classrooms far ‘out-of-field’ from their own upbringing and background leaving them searching for a way to connect with their students. In schools made up of 75% or more low-income students, there are 3 times the number of out-of-field teachers than in wealthier school districts. “Teachers  tend  to  teach  the  way  they   were  taught...[they]  have  something  like   15,000  hours  of  'muscle  memory'  about   what  it  feels  like  to  be  a  student.” - Karen Cator, Office of Educational Technology US Department of Education, August 2013 CONTEXTUAL FACTORS As  we  see  8inancial  divides  expanding   amongst  economically  depressed  and   immigrant  families,  educational  disparity   grows  at  a  rapid  pace.  And  given  that  Gen   Edgers  are  the  most  diverse  generation  of   all  time,  this  is  an  issue  impacting  the   majority  of  classrooms  in  America.  Many   of  today’s  teachers  are  unprepared  for   what  awaits  them  in  the  classroom. DISPARATE “Many  teachers  have  vocalized  that  hungry  children  in  their  classroom  is  a   ‘serious  issue’.  In  fact,  problems  are  so  severe  that  a  new  study  shows  that   teachers  spent  $37  a  month  buying  food  for  hungry  students,  up  from  $26   a  month  in  2012.” - No Kid Hungry teachers Report, 2013
  9. 9. “We  talk  about  our  schools  like  they’re   broken  institutions  that  need  to  be  5ixed   or  discarded,  or  thrown  away,  or  shut   down;  and  really  instead  we  need  to  look   at  them  as  places  of  hope  and  potential,   which  is  exactly  what  they  are.” Helen Gym, Parents United, West Philadelphia
  10. 10. A RESILIENT AND SELF RELIANT COHORT THE REALITY TODAY ISN’T THAT GEN EDGE IS FAILING... "I  uncovered  that  if  learning  is  embedded  in  real-­‐ world  context,  that  if  you  blur  the  boundaries   between  school  and  life,  then  children  go  through  a   journey  of    ‘aware’,  where  they  can  see  the  change,   ‘enable’,  be  changed,  and  then  ‘empower’,  lead  the   change.  And  that  directly  increased  student   wellbeing.  Children  became  more  competent,  and   less  helpless.”           Kiran Sethi, Kids, Take Charge, TedIndia 2009 And  with  their  rebellious  Gen  X  parents  in8luence  -­‐   they  know  they  must  look  outside  the  box  of   traditional  education  to  secure  a  viable  future  for   themselves  and  the  world. Gen  Edge  doesn’t  measure  educational  success  on  a   diploma  or  dean’s  list  recognition  but  rather  look   towards  life  experience  and  practical  application  as   the  guiding  light  of  approval.     Alternative  paths  will  be  their  norm. AREN’T AFRAID TO LEARN OUTSIDE THE LINES. GENERATION
  11. 11. Increasingly.  Gen  Edge  is  compelled  to  learn   on  their  own  terms.    Finding  new  methods   they  understand,  can  apply  and  most   importantly  will  pay  off  in  the  long  run.  As   the  world  recognizes  the  failures  of  the   education  system,  we  will  see  Gen  Edge’s   adaptability  coupled  with  the  turn  of  digital   technology  creating  true  democratization  of   education.  This  level  playing  ground   acknowledges  differentiated  learning   processes,  strengths  and  weaknesses  and     removes  cultural  and  5inancial  barriers   students  and  families  are  faced  with  in   traditional  school  systems.     Dallas  ISD Received  $791,000  Gates  Foundation  Grant  for  a   program  to  create  individual  plans  that  cater   speci5ically  to  each  student  and  their  learning  style Khan  Academy Nonpro5it  website  that  provides  free  world-­‐class   education  to  anyone.  “Khan  Academy  offers  an   innovative  portal  that  could  revolutionize  the   American  educational  system.”  -­‐  Newsweek Demos  UK Pilot  program  of  student  set  goals  and  student/ teacher  co-­‐produced  curriculum  and  benchmarks PERSONALIZED LEARNING "The  classroom  of  tomorrow  must  focus  on  the  learner.  Each  child  is  unique  in  his   or  her  development  and  GEMS  Education  approaches  the  role  of  the  teacher  as  one   who  facilitates  student  discovery,  one  who  bolsters  differentiating  experiences  to   promote  personalized  learning  and  one  who  creates  'schools  of  one'." Denise Gallucci, CEO GEMS Education Americas LEARNING OUTSIDE THE LINES
  12. 12. GEN EDGE WILL INNOVATE RATHER THAN REGURGITATE LEARNING OUTSIDE THE LINES “Hackers  are  innovators,  they  are  people  who   challenge  and  change  the  system  to  make   them  work  more  differently,  to  make  them   work  better.  Happy,  Healthy,  Creativity  in  the   hacker  mindset  are  all  a  large  part  of  my   education...I  call  it  Hackschooling.  I  don’t  use   any  one  particular  curriculum  and  I’m  not   dedicated  to  any  one  particular  approach.” Logan LaPlante, Tedx University of Nevada Before,  learning  mimicked  traditional  call   and  response  style  with  books,  analog   supplies  and  dusty  library  resources  -­‐   teachers  share  information  in  classrooms   and  students  were  instructed  to  repeat  on   tests,  quizzes  and  8inals.   Now,  we  see  our  Gen  Edge  cohort  living   within  a  different  learning  market  fueled   by  a  real  concern  that  memorization  does   them  no  good  in  the  real  world  they  are   being  forced  to  grow  into  quickly.  They   aren’t  satis8ied  learning  another  history   lesson  to  repeat  once  they  are  adults.   GenEdge  would  rather  experience  real   world  lessons.  In  context.  In  situation.     And  immediately  applicable  to  the   challenges  they  see  in  the  world.
  13. 13. THE REALITY TODAY ISN’T THAT GEN EDGE IS FAILING... PRACTICAL PLANS FOR THE FUTURE Unlike  the  milestone  obsessed  and  praise  hungry   Millennials,  Gen  Edgers  are  rede8ining  what  they   consider  success  to  look  like.   With  the  downfall  of  education,  an  entire  global   economic  crisis  and  job  security  on  the  fritz,  they   are  considering  more  realistic  goals  and  dreams.   Rather  an  aspiring  to  the  lofty  corner  of8ice,  yearly   pay  raise  or  entrepreneurial  path  because  they   want  to  create  ‘something  cool’  -­‐  they  seek  to  8ind   a  safe  way  to  support  themselves  AND  make  a  real   impact  on  the  world’s  problems.  Gen  Edgers  might   explore  professions  that  will  bene8it  more  than   just  their  own  pocket  book,  i.e.  biomedical   engineering,  sustainability  or  even  cyber  security   career  paths. “In  the  UK,  students  studying  STEM  courses   (science,  tech,  engineering  and  maths)  are  at  a   record  high.    In  2013  -­‐14,  a  record  98,000  students   were  accepted  on  STEM  courses  -­‐  up  by  almost  20%   since  the  previous  decade.” - Study from the Higher Education Funding Council
  14. 14. OFFER ALTERNATIVE ASPIRATIONAL MODELS Aspiration  looks  different  today  and   will  continue  to  change.  The  days  of   white  collar  workers,  fashionable  work   wardrobes  and  company  cars  are   coming  to  a  rapid  end.   And  Gen  Edge  doesn’t  aspire  to  this   soon-­‐to-­‐be  extinct  lifestyle  either.  They   will  look  to  see  alternative  vignettes  of   success  and  lifestyles  from  brands  that   match  the  reality  of  life.   Demonstrating  that  brands  are  aware  of   and  embrace  this  new  way  of  life  will   build  a  connection  to  a  generation  that   gives  very  little  credit  to  brands  or  their   personas. Incorporate  alternative  career  (or  job)   choices  in  communication  and  avoid   making  conventional  trappings  of   success  an  overt  focus  of  messaging   when  speaking  to  Gen  Edge. BRAND IMPLICATIONS
  15. 15. PROVIDE OPPORTUNITY FOR REAL WORLD EXPERIENCE Gen  Edge  are  more  likely  to  want    to   apprentice  or  be  hired  at  an  entry-­‐level,   on-­‐the-­‐ground  position  by  your  brand   to  gain  valuable  real  life  experiences   and  skills.   Consider  ways  to  provide  real  life  job   shadow,  mentor  and  apprenticeship   opportunities  over  entertainment   events  to  engage  with  Gen  Edge.  Make   the  brand  activation  worth  something   worthwhile  that  truly  bene8its  the   participants  in  the  long  term. 40  Alternatives  to  College  Handbook   In  his  book,  James  Altucher  argues  why   college  is  no  longer  a  viable  option  for   youth  and  offers  40  alternative,  real  life   experiences  in  lieu  of  traditional   education.
