Skills needed for the new economy

See this article. I’d even assert that peer learning is necessary to inculcate complex problem solving, creativity and critical thinking. Old school education, especially now that conservatives have control of it in the US, just creates drones who have already been left out of the economy as their jobs move overseas in droves. But that’s what the oligarchs want, desperate people with little opportunity to take the shit part-time jobs with no benefits or protections. The educational system by design doesn’t want them with the above qualities, for then they could create jobs in the new collaborative commons economy.
