I asked John Abbott about our year at the 21st Century Learning Initiative. Lots of changes, as you have seen. We also unearthed this wonderful video, made for Education 2000  – the precursor to the initiative.

This video was created after a CBI conference that John addressed 25 years ago. Ironically, that speech covered the same ground as this year’s CBI conference (more on that in last week’s post). So, we have come a long way in a year but not a long way when it comes to the more fundamental, and more profound, big issues.
