Today’s increasingly complex world demands much of its students. Now more than ever, the nation’s education system is being challenged by a technology-driven global economy that requires a skilled and deeply literate workforce. To accomplish this, policy and practice at the federal, state, and local levels need to support deeper learning—the knowledge and skills all students need to succeed in college, the modern workplace, and life.
On May 26, 2011,The Alliance for Excellent Education released its newest policy brief, “A Time for Deeper Learning: Preparing Students for a Changing World.” Panelists and guest presenters discussed the practice of deeper learning and the federal policy implications of preparing all students for the demands of a rapidly changing global workforce and the economy.
