Is the education system keeping pace?

An interesting thought:-
It used to be important to be book smart; well read, well educated.

My question is whether the education system is aware of this? It seems to me that it is all about knowledge and attaining high grades.

If you want to profile your customers, it’s simpler than you might think, so please get in touch.
