The American school system is lacking and I think this guy might be on to something.
The Most Neglected Skills
from Jeff Livingston on big think
Jeff Livingston is the Senior VP of Education Policy and Strategic Alliance at McGraw-Hill Education. I think most Americans would recognize this name from at least one, if not most of the school books they owned for a year at a time. If this is what the guy that is the Senior Vice President of Education at the company who makes the books that will guide America’s children into adulthood thinks, maybe we should listen. Unfortunately listening isn’t always enough. Sharing this video with a representative in your district or on Facebook or twitter will be the only way they hear it in Washington.
