Our capacity—as a community, a region, and a nation—to successfully meet the challenges of the future world economy will depend on our ability to develop a highly skilled and adaptable workforce. The capacity of individuals to successfully meet the challenges of the future will require them to develop reasoning, creativity, and the ability to build and manage human relationships with people unlike themselves. To prepare students for the future we must be willing to challenge the assumptions about education we once accepted and embraced. Themes that emerged during the study led to the development of specific recommendations in three categories: for community involvement, for the improvement of teaching, and for the improvement of student learning.
