Our students must become the innovators, the designers, the forward-thinkers, the business and community leaders, the creative teachers, the moral compass of the future.  We, as teachers and school administrators have them for 7-10 hours every day.  Are we preparing them to be what they must become to lead the future?  Are we only doing the required lesson in the same way we’ve always done it?  Or are we creating a learning environment that is radically different than the one past generations slogged through to get a high school diploma?  What needs to change for our students–and how are we going to make those global changes in the way kids learn?
