This is a story about the big public
conversation the nation is not having about
education whether an entire generation of kids

because they cant think their way through
abstract problems, work in teams, distinguish
good information from bad, or speak a language
other than English. How to Build a Student for
the 21st Century, TIME Magazine, December 18, 2006
