Abstract : If our schools, especially the K-12 segment, are not adequately preparing our youth to meet the challenges of a 21st century workplace, what is being done to correct the problem? This paper examines the strategic view of major stakeholders from Government, Education and related professional associations, and Business interests. First a comparison is made to determine if there is (relatively) common ground in the area of strategic vision. Some issues of concern to stakeholders are highlighted. Finally, areas and programs which are making real progress toward improvement are discussed. The author's conclusions about the educational reform effort are then offered.
