See on Scoop.it21st century learning and education

New data shows the problem getting worse.

Heather Peretz‘s insight:

"A new study showing explosive growth in student poverty suggests, though, that we have misidentified the problem. What if we have actually been teaching the right skills in U.S. schools all along ā€“ math and reading, science and civics, along with creativity, perseverance, and team-building?"

Is povery the real problem? What do you think?
