The kids in Gen Y have spoken, and I think they're good on their word. Gen Y, a very social conscious generation, has its list of Top 10 causes. And the number #1 issue? Not hunger, not AIDs, not environment, not poverty - - it's Education. (Source: 2006 Cone, AMP Insights, reported in USA Today)
Say goodbye to the current school/college-as-factory folks.
Yes, Gen Y will tackle pollution, environment, health and disease issues, because world survival depends on them finding solutions. But they also will change Education because a post-industrial society depends on it. Go kids!
