Shifting Emphasis of the Workforce

Not that the workforce is the primary target of our education (we easily lose focus that we are helping develop well-rounded people, not just workers)...

But, George Siemens has a post on a recent report showing the shift from the service-industry to the creative-industry that mimics what we are seeing in Iowa. Analysis and synthesis skills, as well as social intelligence skills, are key to properly training this workforce... not a deep focus on core knowledge.
