4 _Macros 21 st Century Knowledge and Skills School I'd Like competition The Guardian Newspaper High Schools are Institutions of today run on the principles of yesterday year old British girl, 1967

5 _Macros 21 st Century Knowledge and Skills School I'd Like competition The Guardian Newspaper The school we'd like is (2000): A beautiful school with glass dome roofs to let in the light, uncluttered classrooms and brightly coloured walls. A safe school with swipe cards for the school gate, anti-bully alarms, first aid classes, and someone to talk to about our problems. A listening school with children on the governing body, class representatives and the chance to vote for the teachers. A flexible school without rigid timetables or exams, without compulsory homework, without a one-size-fits-all curriculum, so we can follow our own interests and spend more time on what we enjoy.

6 _Macros 21 st Century Knowledge and Skills The School that Id Like, 2000 A relevant school where we learn through experience, experiments and exploration, with trips to historic sites and teachers who have practical experience of what they teach. A respectful school where we are not treated as empty vessels to be filled with information, where teachers treat us as individuals, where children and adults can talk freely to each other, and our opinion matters. A school without walls so we can go outside to learn, with animals to look after and wild gardens to explore. A school for everybody with boys and girls from all backgrounds and abilities, with no grading, so we don't compete against each other, but just do our best.

40 _Macros 21 st Century Knowledge and Skills Summary of findings The workforce gap in Silicon Valley, comprised of unfilled positions, outside recruits and commuters, has increased by over 25% since 1997 and cost business more than $6 billion a year in High access does not appear to translate into high awareness of or motivation to pursue technology careers. Motivation to pursue technology careers is less among females than males. Social networks for technology acclimation drive an individuals motivation and preparation to pursue technology careers There are fewer technology related networking opportunities for Hispanics and African Americans than for Asians and Whites. Social networks that can bridge across geography, race and class are key to success in the new economy. Hard skills are essential, but its the connections and mentoring that provide information about what skills are necessary and a vision of how acquiring them can lead to new opportunities for all our residents. -- Professor Manuel Pastor, Jr., University of California, Santa Cruz
