Knowledge, Learning, Community

This is more of what has been a lot of discussion in recent months about redesigning the education systems. For some, it is clear that a lot of change needs to happen, while by contrast I'm hearing from elsewhere that after the pandemic things will spring back to normal. But they won't, because we'll be paying for the pandemic for the rest of our lives, and because we're still looking at more huge global changes as we're hit with climate change and social upheaval. This article lays out the 'conventional wisdom' on a number of fronts, and then lays it out against the measure of reality. The article is weak, frankly, on solutions, but it lays out the challenges well.
