The Partnership for 21st Century Skills, working to infuse 21st-century skills into America’s learning systems, claims its goal is to provide students with a rigorous, world-class education that encourages critical and creative thinking.
But Jay Matthews of the Washington Post senses that its expectations are for “all-at-once” change, “a common failing of reform movements.”
To succeed in the shift to 21st-century skills learning systems, it is critical to understand that such a transition will be neither fast nor simple. It will require heavy funding for teacher training. West Virginia, for example, is now working to reorient the training and professional support of its 20,000 public school teachers, to ensure they are able to execute such projects.
