Mission: Performance

What's most important?
What's most important?

Quick, what’s more important: reading or math? A new survey by the Partnership for 21st Century Skills asked 800 registered voters nationwide about the importance of different skills that students will need to compete in today’s economy. The survey asked about not only standard school curriculum fare like reading and math, but also high-tech skills, such as computer literacy, and subtler abilities, including global awareness and media literacy. The survey then asked how well schools were teaching these skills. In every case, there was the perception that teachers were doing a poor job of preparing kids for today’s workforce.
