    This is the most up to date version i know of. As a teacher it really hits a chord. How do we solve this with an education/exam system that is not set up to tackle these skills.
    Makes me realise I have to rethink all I do.

    Cripes. I sat through nine-and-a-half minutes of statistics machinegunned at my head, with no particular argument to be made. Meanwhile, here in California, school funding is being disemboweled, students are more concerned with not getting shot by their peers for their iPods than making it in the workplace (that may or may not be around when they get out), and the economy is such that someone living in Bayview (a mere five miles south of Downtown San Francisco) are lucky if they can get a six year-old PC with Win98 and a modem to work with.

    I think the environments that kids are living and learning in need to be addressed before we start worrying about how advanced their cognitive skills are compared to others....
