21st Century Skills, Education & Competitiveness


"The report investigates the links between strong, viable economies and 21st century education systems. The work, sponsored by the Partnership for 21st Century Skills, the Ford Motor Company Fund, KnowledgeWorks Foundation and the National Education Association, finds that creating a 21st century education system that prepares students, workers and citizens to triumph in the global skills race is the central economic competitiveness issue currently facing the United States. The report also highlights two achievement gaps -- domestic and global -- prevalent throughout the United States education system and offers steps and recommendations to close both gaps and ensure all graduates are capable of competing with their national and international peers."
