What this means is that 41,750 additional commuters were needed to fill the city’s new jobs. This dependency (89%) on suburban workers has become even more pronounced since 2000.” ~DC Chamber of Commerce 2006 Job Growth and the Role of Public Schools: Job Growth and the Role of Public Schools “This missed job growth opportunity represents a theoretical loss to the city of personal earnings totaling $1.68 billion and $403 million in lost market potential. This new income would have generated an estimated $107.4 million in new income tax revenue…” “The essential starting point is a public school system that prepares the city’s youth for a productive life.” ~State of the Business Report, DC Chamber of Commerce, 2006 Ten Trends: Ten Trends How does FordPAS prepare our students for a profoundly different future? How does it prepare students with 21st Century Skills through 21st Century Pedagogy?Ten Trends - Unprecedented Shift in History: Ten Trends - Unprecedented Shift in History Older people will outnumber younger people. By 2050 no single racial group will make up a significant majority of the U.S. population. Social and intellectual capital is becoming the primary economic value in society. As students master rigorous learning for life, education will become more personalized. Basic human rights and economic fairness in a global economy are important social justice issues.

Technology will increase the speed of communication. Knowledge creation and interdisciplinary careers require interdisciplinary teaching, applications of cognitive research, a focus on developing thinking and reasoning skills, and a commitment to translating knowledge into wisdom. Gary Marx Ten Trends: Educating Children for Tomorrow’s WorldTen Trends - Unprecedented Shift in History: Ten Trends - Unprecedented Shift in History Educating youth requires a strong code of ethics because tomorrow’s decision-makers will reap both the benefits and the consequences of the choices they make, which will shape everything from scientific discoveries to social realities. Today’s students are competing with students around the world, and competition will increase as industries and professions seek to recruit and retain talent.
