Education and Human Capital Requirements RoundtablePosted on May 17, 2012 by MHRFAdmin
The McGraw-Hill Research Foundation and United States Council Foundation Issued a White Paper Exploring New Approaches to Lifelong Learning for the 21st Century
A white paper released today from the United States Council Foundation, the educational arm of the United States Council for International Business (USCIB), and The McGraw-Hill Research Foundation summarizes the conclusions of “The Education and Human Capital Requirements Roundtable.” In order to address the needs of the 21st century economy, educators, policy makers and the business community should develop a common global approach to education, skills development and lifelong learning. Suggested approaches include building resilience into curriculums and shifting the focus from either/or knowledge or skills training to an area that includes both.
The paper calls for a continuous, cogent conversation to respond to the global and personal challenges of the 21st century.
