Part 2: Robert Compton Discusses Educational Reform & His Film “Two Million Minutes”
1) What are the comparative number of science courses taught in high school and the amount of time spent on the social sciences and world history?
2) What do Indian and Chinese educators see as the areas most in need of reform within their own schools? Are there myths within the Chinese and Indian educational establishment as to their own perceived weaknesses?
3) How are China, India and the United States approaching the key 21st century industries, especially the ones concerning environmental and energy issues?
4) How can the United States improve their current educational system? At this point, Bob talks about his upcoming film that gives recommendations, “The 21st Century Solution”. Some of his observations might surprise you.
5) As China and India develop and progress, will they also lose some of their work ethic and be less competitive?
6) What is the current situation in educational reform for all three countries? Has the United States had any meaningful educational reform in the last 25 years?
