Bill Gates on the Future Workforce
  • Im not here to pose as an education expert. I
    head a corporation and a foundation. One I get
    paid for the other one costs me. But both jobs
    give me a perspective on education in America,
    and both perspectives leave me appalled.
  • When I compare our high schools to what I see
    when Im traveling abroad, I am terrified for our
    workforce of tomorrow. In math and science, our
    4th graders are among the top students in the
    world. By 8th grade, theyre in the middle of the
    pack.
  • By 12th grade, U.S. students are scoring near the
    bottom of all industrialized nations.
