The development of higher-order thinking skills are critical to this global competitiveness, and educators face the challenge of training students for careers that don’t yet exist with technologies that are rapidly changing and difficult to predict. Yet reduced resources make meeting these challenges problematic, if not seemingly impossible. Without waiting for external help from the state, educators can create a positive foundation by engaging parents, recruiting active involvement from community leaders and utilizing innovative technology in the classroom to teach students skills necessary for real world work environment.
