The information available on networks woven across people, places and time may be so far ahead of our social development as a species that it collapses systems we depend on for survival. We have widespread access to information that is not controlled by any church, government, or political organization. Never before in the history of mankind has this been possible. Access and use of this information requires a whole new approach to education at all levels. Sadly, never in our history has there been such a major divergence between generations. The gap is widening, not shrinking. It is dividing America.
Education is the key to our survival. We must evolve our schools for the Information Age and the Interactive Age.
Tragically, the major move in America at this time is to destroy interdisciplinary comprehensive curriculum-based, fact-based education and privatize schools so corporations can get access to our education tax dollars.
