Center for Curriculum Redesign’s comprehensive White Paper proposing curriculum for the future.
"In the 21st century, humanity faces severe challenges at the societal (climate change, financial instability), economic (globalization, innovation) and personal levels (employability, happiness). Technology’s exponential growth is rapidly compounding the problems via automation and offshoring, which are producing societal disruptions. Education is falling behind the curve , as it did during the Industrial Revolution. Yet more 1 crucially than ever, humanity is searching for its sustainable future. The last major changes to curriculum were effected in the late 1800’s as a response to the sudden growth in 2 societal and human capital needs. As the world of the 21st century bears little resemblance to that of the 19th century, education curricula are overdue for a major redesign, emphasizing depth of understanding and versatility."
