How many of you would HIRE someone who came into an interview and announced the following:
- I prefer to work alone (translation: I'm terrible at working collaboratively).
- I am really good at book work (translation: I can't apply my knowledge to real-world problems).
Now, how many of the TOP secondary students in our current education system would proudly say . . .
- I hate working in groups.
- Standardized test scores are what I have to show for my educational career.
Seems there's a giant disconnect between "real world" skills we want to hire and skills learned within traditional schools.
What do you think?
