Our schools are failing our children on a colossal scale. The attributes children nurture and acquire in school are not preparing them for the workforce. Most academic institutions are entities, in and of themselves, designed to serve the needs of the administration, school boards and the academic elites in the university realm. There are small pockets of schools that ‘get it’ and realize that our children and young adults are not prepared for the workforce upon graduation, even if jobs were available. They are trying to make the shift.
