Yesterday or Tomorrow?
Will your child be educated for the World of Yesterday or the World of Tomorrow?This should be a silly question, but Howard Gardner, a professor at Harvard’s Graduate School of Education, said that most teaching is preparing young people for the 19th and 20th centuries, not the 21st century.
Parents must be visionary in their educational choices for their children. What will the world be like in 20 years for a child beginning preschool today? There is no crystal ball, but providing your child with the unique education that Global Village offers will give him or her the skills necessary for success in a global economy. We prepare children for the 21st century by:
Offering world class academics
Teaching English and a second world language
Developing cultural competency
Cultivating authentic 21st century skills
