The Monster Under the Bed: How Business Is Mastering the Opportunity of Knowledge for Profit

Is America doomed to be the ``best schooled and least educated modern society''? Davis (Future Perfect) and Botkin (No Limits to Learning) ask and answer the question, predicting that America's schools will undergo an eventual metamorphosis because business (and business-driven learning) are likely to assume ``the major responsibility for the kind of education... necessary for any country to remain competitive in the new economy.'' The authors argue that ``smart technologies,'' effective institutional training and the phenomenon of lifelong learning will persuade educators that America has an invaluable opportunity ``to reinvigorate and even redefine'' its education system. Davis and Botkin's ideas could and should spark public policy debates. (Sept.)
