Education system must account for change

Education system must account for change: "# The 25 percent of China's population with the highest IQ is greater than the total population of North America (and in India, the figure is 28 percent). China has more honors kids than we have kids.

# China will soon be the No. 1 English-speaking nation in the world.

# Today's students will have had 10 to 14 jobs by the age of 38.

# One in four workers at any company are employed there for less than a year.

# The amount of technical information in the world doubles every two years, so some of what students are learning in college will be outdated by the time they graduate."
