“The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read or write. They will be those who cannot learn, unlearn or re-learn.” – Alain Tofle
Many people today, who have undergone formal schooling, do not have life survival skills, having only acquired learning for school (i.e. academic education), which they do not KNOW how to apply usefully in the real world.
We already know from years of recent history that it is no longer necessarily those who do well in school that go on to achieve success in life. It used to be so, when paid employment was the primary destination for people who finished school/learning.
