Grego’s Comments: It looks bleak, but there’s hope

The future is predicted to be bleak … Economically, environmentally you name it. All doom and gloom.  The end is near!

Maybe so or maybe solutions to the multitude of problems plaguing the world haven’t been figured out yet by the next generation of younger, highly intelligent people. I was told something the other night by a school administrator at an address to parents that made me think, there’s still hope for the future!  The reason being, kids and young adults today are a hell of a lot smarter and more advanced than we ever were.

Check this out.. The high school principal that was speaking showed a question from an 11th grade standardized test from the ’80s and asked us what grade we thought they teach that material in today.  People were saying 8th grade, 6th grade, 9th grade. Yeah … how about 3rd grade! All I know is there must be some really dumb CEO’s out there running corporations! We’ve reported on a few of ’em!

The potential for great minds to come along and figuratively save the day is very real. No one could have predicted what Bill Gates or Steve Jobswould create. There’s Facebook CEO, genius, Mark Zuckerberg and others yet to be discovered. Our education system and teachers should be commended given the resources necessary to keep their collective education feet on the learning gas pedal. To keep pushing our kids to learn faster. They can handle it. Besides we’re in need of some great minds in a hurry!
