The change agenda in education

These global collaborators never change their tune; they never introduce the evidence or provide the subtleties of alternative viewpoints. Over time their vision crystallises but it never deviates from its course. We are led to believe that social and emotional learning is a vital part of education for the 21st century, even though humanity arrived at this juncture without such learning.

What is it about social and emotional learning?

It`s as if the Enlightenment never happened.
"According to the World Economic Forum’s 2016 report titled New Vision for Education: Fostering Social and Emotional Learning Through Technology,` To thrive in the 21st century, students need more than traditional academic learning. They must be adept at collaboration, communication, and problem solving, which are some of the skills developed through social and emotional learning (SEL). Coupled with mastery of traditional skills, social and emotional proficiency will equip students to succeed in the swiftly evolving digital economy`."
But here`s the answer:

"The coming decades will see an era of the most radical changes in education since the appearance of national education systems. And the source of these changes will not be in the educational system itself, but rather it will be driven primarily by industries: digital technologies, healthcare, and finance..."

"Outside the education system, a new transnational market emerges, which within a couple of decades (or even sooner) could take over the traditional educational system and introduce new standards of learning and talent management."
