Preparing kids for life after high school. Really?

Why do videos like this one, claiming to prepare our kids for the future, always look like they were created in the 20th century?

And this video explaining the common core….there isn’t very much “21st century” in these classrooms, is there? I believe you can absolutely have inquiry without technology, but when you say, “Preparing kids for life after high school is a top priority here,” shouldn’t that include the tools they already have?

Isn’t our idea of “preparing kids for life after high school” a bit limited? I continue to think leadership’s incomplete view of the future is doing us more harm than good.
