Critical Shifts For Today’s Schools by Terry Heick

Terrell Heick, Founder

When a society changes, so then must its tools. Definitions of purpose and quality must also be revised continuously. What should a school ‘do’? Why can’t education, as a system, refashion itself as aggressively as the digital technology that is causing it so much angst? The fluidity of a given curriculum should at least match the fluidity of relevant modern knowledge demands.
