5 How did we get here? North Carolina has moved from a manufacturing and agricultural economy to a technological and research-based economy. Schools must respond to this change if children are to be ready for the future. 5

6 What happens over time? Let’s consider a 65 year old born in 1943 who began school in 1948 Decide which decade the event belongs in:  1940s  1950s  1960s  1970s  1980s  1990s  2000 - present 6

7 Consider a child starting Kindergarten today… This child was born in 2005 This child was not alive when 9/11 occurred The United States has been at war for this child’s entire life thus far We will need to educate this child for a life that will bring retirement in 2070 or later 7

8 What might life look like in 2070? robots being mentally and physically superior to humans space elevators are built to the moon artificial intelligence entities are awarded PhDs 8 We need to prepare students for the 21 st Century

9 9 In North Carolina, for every 100 9 th grade students… … 70 students graduate four years later … 41 students enter college … 28 students are still enrolled in their 2nd year …19 students graduate with either an Associate’s degree within three years or a Bachelor’s degree within six years Source: NORTH CAROLINA’S Educational Pipeline (2008)
