We know that the world in which our education
system was created - the industrial world of the 19th and early 20th
centuries - no longer exists. Today we live in a technology-driven
global marketplace where ideas and innovation outperform muscle and
machine. In an age of digital content and global communications, we
must build an education system that meets the new demands of our time.
Technology can help us create schools where every child has the
opportunity to succeed, while we work to close the achievement gap and
address the economic and workforce needs of the future.
