The jobs of the future will not be jobs of the past, which will go the way of the dodo and Blockbuster. A paradigm shift as great as the growth of e-commerce does to old ways of doing business what Hurricane Michael did to Florida. Locally, this means our schools need to adapt their curricula to prepare students for a world of STEM, computers, artificial intelligence, automation — and globalization. Computer science (which is not the same as “coding”), AI, Spanish and Chinese are as essential for our kids as art, history and biology. The classroom of tomorrow will be as different from today’s as present-day schools are from yesteryear’s one-room schoolhouses. We may not know what those jobs will be, but we do know what skills our displaced workers and children need for them.
