Let's have a roundtable discussion about how the following will impact the way we view/run education in not only our specific locales, but across the US. (questions are based on info on a book from Eric Marx(?), a member of the World Future Society) 1. The old will outnumber the young. 2. Majorities become the minorities. 3. Standards and high stakes tests fuel a demand for personalization of learning in the educational system that's focused on lifelong development. 4. Pressure will grow from society to prepare of jobs and careers that do not yet exist.

It's interesting that standards and high stakes tests will be the fuel behind individualized learning. That may be the only positive that comes from NCLB, although I suspect that the pressure to improve education, although NCLB approaches it in a misguided fashion, will be another positive.

These trends are exciting yet frightening. As an educator, I wonder where we will find the resources or create them in the short amount of time we have to begin to meet the growing demand. I hope we're up for the challenge.
