During the State of the Union, President Obama has announced a plan to make the American education system more focused on tech skills. While there weren't many details in the short declaration, Obama cited New York's P-Tech high-school as a model.

Good point, Haley! We can teach tech skills all we want but we cannot forget people skills - unless we are ok with a society who doesn't communicate person-to-person

Technology still needs to be a major focus point considering how our generation is evolving and how the business world will most likely follow.

I agree with Haley's statement. If we continue to push teaching with technology instead of hands on learning then in the future students will lack the communication and working skills with people, which is needed outside of school
