We don’t know what the job market will look like five years from now, let alone 10-12 years in the future.  Who knows what kinds of jobs will be available.  There will likely be career fields that we couldn’t even imagine.  On the flip side some jobs that are currently being done will be replaced by robots.

Above is a picture I shared on Truth in American Education’s Facebook page.  It highlights a growing problem that seen in education today – assessing kids for workforce needs instead of encouraging their God-given abilities.  ACT in fact has developed a career test for third graders.  They plan to develop one for kindergarteners as well.

A friend emailed me last night and she made a point that is germane to the point I made above, “Let’s try to predict the future, place kids on a one track education and hope we were right. God forbid they are wrong and no one needs little Johnny’s one dimensional set of skills.”
