Preparing Our Children for the World Ahead - The Future of American Education


The world is in the midst of unprecedented change. We are seeing shifts economically, technologically and culturally that are more rapid than ever before. As parents, we work hard to prepare our children to take their place as leaders in our rapidly changing world by answering questions such as: What skills will children need to contribute to a complex and interdependent world? How do we create global citizens, ethical leaders and contributors to the greater good? How do we prepare children academically and develop the ability to think, while also emphasizing character development and interpersonal skills? Join us at this talk with Dr. Chip Kimball, superintendent of Singapore American School, as he shares the future of American education and how we can prepare our children for the world ahead.
