21st Century Education

The world and the job market have changed dramatically in the past decade - but what about our schools? While much of the talk about education reform has focused on improving education, there is growing agreement that we need to change the way we educate our kids.

Dan Boylan moderates a panel of experts on the topic, including Tony Wagner, Co-Director of the Change Leadership Group at the Harvard Graduate School of Education; Mitch D'Olier, the CEO of the Harold K.L. Castle Foundation; Jason Yoshida, Principal of Kekaha Elementary School; and Billi Smith, West Kauai School Renewal Specialist. Contributing editor Howard Dicus sets the topic in an economic context with his Everybody's Business reports.

This conversation was recorded on November 5, 2009 in the PBS Hawaii studio.

Insights on PBS Hawaii is presented on Thursdays at 7:30 PM on PBS Hawaii.
