Is the education of our generation better or worse than the education of our parent's generation by Eric Hamilton

In 1440 a goldsmith and businessman by the name of Johannes Gutenberg invented the printing press with moveable type letters. The printing press created a revolution in the production of books and the proliferation of science, the arts and religion. As a result, education and literacy flourished through out Europe and beyond.

The Internet has seen tremendous growth in the past 30 years. The Internet was originally designed in part to provide a robust communications network in the event of a nuclear attack. Jupiter Research anticipates that 22 percent of the world’s population will regularly use the Internet by 2011. Currently 1.1 billion people world wide readily access the Internet. In other terms, that is 1.1 billion people with virtually unlimited access to the world’s knowledge.

Never in the history of mankind has access to education been better. We have access to information via the Internet that Johannes Gutenberg could only dream about. Not since Gutenberg’s invention of the printing press has the world seen such a quantum leap in access to information. Is the education of my generation better or worse than my parent’s generation? Not only is it better than my parent’s generation, it’s the best education of any generation ever.

As for the Galaxy Note 5, there’s only supposed to be on model. That said, Samsung’s also expected to introduce a big screen device that features a dual-edged display like the Galaxy S6 Edge.

Hello, Eric. This is really a great article. I think that problem with todays' education is that its standards are written by academic experts and will solve an academic problem, but the problem with US education systems is that the education provided to students does not meet the needs of industry and business, and until business and industry has a seat at the table, all the standards will only solve non-problems.
