Shortage of academic professionals University graduates do not think or behave like professionals Display an interest and talent for theoretical training
New missions New approaches New types New patterns New leadership

Can you think of any other industry today with the potential to remain in business 200+ years in the future without adapting adequately to change?
To capitalize on potential growth and development An increasing number of minimally educated people who would voluntarily:
Be in a certain place at a certain time every day, Remain in that place for eight, ten or perhaps 12 or more hours a day each and every day,
Perform rote and routine tasks (many of which were agonizingly repetitive), and Perform these rote tasks day-in and day-out without questions.
That if the goal was to provide a steady stream of people ready and willing to perform routinely and habitually, then education was clearly the solution
Rebellion against “irrelevance” in the curriculum Narrow professional assumptions
We continue to crank out thousands of future employees each and every year. This same education model remains in effect to this day. No desire to see beyond years of ‘earning a pay-check’.
“If a farmer accustomed to working the ground with hoe and the spade spent his life working without thinking, he would never have thought about improving his tools.” - Tsunesaboro Makiguchi (1930)
