On the cusp of industrial revolution

Well, there it is: the Boss is taking us into our next stage of industrial evolution. It'll be more customized towards the individual student. We're going to teach in more innovative ways and the kids have to learn to innovate on their own too. It'll be important to ground the kids in solid theory, but they've also got to see how theory applies in a way that is relevant to their lives.

As excited as I am about these sweeping new changes, I still have to keep my ear to the ground and see who else is likely to rally around this cause. This is a revolution that starts from the ground up. I'm not about to lead this charge by myself.
