As always, then the Christensen Institute reports on "trends" it's describing what it thinks should happen phrased as descriptions or what will probably happen. So here's what the Institute is advocating for: more homeschooling, parents choosing alternative schooling, education savings accounts, school districts supporting customization, competency-based learning, and career and technical education (CTE) for all, instead of college. Most of these don't work for lower-income people at all, but that's OK, they're just be streamed into CTE. As a package, it essentially abandons the idea of public education. It would be a sad future if this were the case, an instance of an economy (and a democracy) in decline, with no real hope for the mass of people in society.
