Robot jobs, outsourcing, and our educational system

Thomas Friedman on robots and offshore workers replacing jobs here.

The term “outsourcing” is also out of date. There is no more “out” anymore.

In the hyperconnected world, there is only “good” “better” and “best,” and managers and entrepreneurs everywhere now have greater access than ever to the better and best people, robots and software everywhere. Obviously, this makes it more vital than ever that we have schools elevating and inspiring more of our young people into that better and best category, because even good might not cut it anymore and average is definitely over.

But the reality is most of our schools are spiraling downwards, providing education that is inadequate or worse.
