We are playing catch up

We are playing catch up

If you were to go back in time 100 years the world would be completely different. The cars we drive, the technology we use, the way we dress, the roles people have in society would all be drastically different.

Everything except our education system.

For some some reason our education system has lacked innovation where other areas thrived.

Many of the skills we learn are no longer relevant in this ever changing modern world.

So how do we keep up?

An Outdated System

In 1837 Horace Mann created the education system. A system at the time, designed to pump out factory workers and professors.

The same system that is still being used today in the 21st century.

Now Mann’s system is backfiring. We are being moulded by the same industrial system that has existed for close to 200 years.

But today, that system delivers us into a digital economy that has no need of our outdated skills.

This isn’t our teacher’s fault, this isn’t the government’s fault, this is due to a rapidly changing world full of technology and unforeseen circumstances… and us GEN Z’s are caught in the middle.

While Driven Young is big on socialising, we also prioritise teaching important life skills through a variety of podcasts and online workshops.
