  • There is a growing understanding (after several years of testing our students to death) that we are not really preparing them for the world they will face. Beginning in the late 1990s with the SCANS report from the US Dept of Labor, it has become increasingly clearly that the skills our young people will need to succeed are significantly different than what high schools were designed to produce.
