We live in a century defined by change. Many political and socioeconomic factors that have limited the economies of parts of the world have slowly been removed while huge technological advances have been made, allowing universal access to the flattening power of the Internet. Ubiquitous access to the Internet has shifted the demand on American students to develop skills that prepare them for more than the traditional workplace. Students in America today are no longer alone in competing for jobs in America.
Greenville County believes that it is our responsibility to prepare students for all paths of life including future education and future careers, especially careers that do not exist currently. We believe we must provide students with the skills necessary to adapt to change in a century that has seen change more rapidly than any previous century.
