Lest anyone think of the authors as teacher-haters, they fully acknowledge that young and inexperienced learners need the guidance and coaching of a teacher. Teaching will never be out of style, but teaching has to change.
I sincerely believe the authors have documented the first real draft of education in the 21st century. Without teacher buy in and corporate stamina, the effort remained too small and compromises too many to result in the vision. However, it WAS a first draft; one of many to come. I continue to lament the resistance of the educational establishment. There is so much to do.
