Bill Gates‘ „America’s high schools are obsolete“ Speech to the National Governor’s Association

Zitate aus dieser Rede kursieren schon seit Tagen im Internet, z.B.:
America’s high schools are obsolete.
By obsolete, I don’t just mean that our high schools are broken, flawed, and under-funded – though a case could be made for every one of those points.
By obsolete, I mean that our high schools – even when they’re working exactly as designed – cannot teach our kids what they need to know today.
Training the workforce of tomorrow with the high schools of today is like trying to teach kids about today’s computers on a 50-year-old mainframe. It’s the wrong tool for the times.“

Jetzt kann man die komplette Rede des Philanthropen und Staatsbürgers BG nachlesen. Und Anmerkungen, die sich an den Microsoft-Chef und Global Player BG richten, gibt es auch, z.B. von Thomas L. Friedmann: „Let me translate Mr. Gates’s words: ‚If we don’t fix American education, I will not be able to hire your kids.'“ Oder: Was bedeutet Bildung in Zeiten der Global Economy?
