“What we need to be doing in the classroom and formal education … (…) Everybody has to be prepared for a lifetime of learning. We no longer in a world where we are expected to go to school for a set number of years then you’ve learned everything and go out into a career.

Because all those new opportunities are out there, but if people are not equipped to take advantage of them they are not going to.”
