“We don’t need to memorize things any more.” Jennifer Medbery begins an article on Reinventing Education To Teach Creativity And Entrepreneurship with this idea.
While I am not sure that I agree with this supposition, I do find the rest of her article to be timely and informative. I come from a family of six generations of entrepreneurs and I tend to smile at any program that seeks out the creative and enterprising spirit in our students (students of all ages!)

robbing kids of a skill more important than solving problems: formulating them” then give a click over to Reinventing Education To Teach Creativity And Entrepreneurship .
