This blog post from the 21st Century Fluency Project came across my desktop. The infographic is interesting. It certainly paints a bleak picture of the state of education these days and provokes some thought. I thought the section comparing public vs. private school was overly simplistic, generalized, and vague. It did though spur thinking about what qualities of a school matter and make a difference. Also, what struck me was that private school graduation rates are much higher (not surprising) but the percentage of kids that continue on to a four-year degree isn’t significantly higher than the percentage of public school graduates. What do you take away from the infographic?
