In this thought-provoking piece from The Hechinger Report, we hear about the author’s perspective on how modern students are not being given the tools to become effective problem-solvers or critical thinkers.

“The rigid structure of the traditional K-12 education system leaves little room for students to engage in real-world problem-solving scenarios.

They should be. Our world presents increasingly complex challenges. Education must adapt so that it nurtures problem solvers and critical thinkers.”
