I'm putting on a seminar for some local high schoolers.

They want me to talk about "Why stay in school".

I'm a bit bored by the "get an extra degree and you'll earn X dollars more" though that tends to be true.

So I started bringing in some issues of globalization to spur the desire to learn.

I think here in the US globalization is taking away even the bottom rung jobs (like receptionists even or drive thru order takers) and folks will have to become entrepreneurial to survive and thrive.

"We" know that.

I'm afraid most kids (and their teachers) don't.

Here's the article at the link below. I'm slapping my head because I didn't mention entrepreneurship along with learning. Oh well, I guess that means I'll have to write part 2.

I submitted this "non exclusive" and they still paid what I thought was nice since I'd have written the article anyway!


I'm still working on the seminar.

What would you tell high school kids (or your kids) about preparing for tomorrow's economy? I'll check back to see your comments!
