When I was young my dad would say
Come on son let's go out and play

No matter how hard I try
No matter how many tears I cry
No matter how many years go by
I still can't say goodbye

"A recent report from the National Commission on Teaching and America’s Future concluded that as many as 75 percent of the country’s teachers are not “fully qualified” for their jobs.

As the pace of change accelerates, the importance of ongoing training on and off the job will continue to increase. What the educational system must do is ensure that all students 'learn to learn' while they are in school so that they can keep themselves current as new technologies emerge.

Perhaps the greatest immediate challenge for the diffusion of information literacy skills is to create a level playing field for access to technology. More should be done to ensure that the digital divide between the information haves and have-nots does not widen further. The 'E-Rate' program mandated by Congress and implemented by the FCC is currently collecting more than $1 billion annually from telephone companies and allocating the money to schools and libraries to purchase computers and online access. Schools in rural areas and in poorer communities continue to lag behind those in more affluent areas in their ability to provide all students with access to technology, however."
