Education in many states hasn’t kept up with the changing face of multiculturalism (or, in many instances, hasn’t kept up, period). The demographic shift the country is experiencing is a proven fact. It’s happening whether state leadership wants to admit it or not and, unless we want to lose a generation of talent, creativity and ingenuity, we’ll be forced to face the fact that something— some things— must change. Without preparing the multicultural Millennial generation for what lies ahead, we’re only harming ourselves (well, and them too, of course). We, as business people and creative problem solvers, need to look at the issues, examine the problems and put our heads together to develop solutions. To do anything less is to cut ourselves off at the knees.
