Bill Gates: US High Schools Obsolete
"'America's high schools are obsolete,' Gates said. 'By obsolete, I don't just mean that they're broken, flawed or underfunded, though a case could be made for every one of those points. By obsolete, I mean our high schools _ even when they're working as designed _ cannot teach all our students what they need to know today.'"

The Slashot discussion on this is interesting. And one reader points out that Gates echoes the views of the Aspen Institute.
