Education Article: Remaking education in the image of our desires

The article opens "the current generation of students will witness the remaking of our education system. Change is happening on many fronts: economic, technological, paradigmatic, social, and the natural cycles of change that occur in complex social/technical systems." The article concludes with a section and a table investigating what is happening in education - listing the major sectors and their new roles. Explaining that "The education marketplace is being remade in a lego-block style model. Startups are targeting different aspects of education and a few large corporations (such as Pearson) are buying these lego pieces to build at new model of education." The article is at times philosophical but is a must read for educators. I recommend reading "Remaking education in the image of our desires."
