Shift Happens

Today in AVID we watched an interesting video about statistics. It really made us think about one fact in particular, that by the time my graduating class begins college in the fall, the information we learn will be outdated by our junior year. The question that was raised was 'If the information we will be learning will become outdated, is there any point in bothering to learn it and go to college?" We going into a very passionate debate about the subject and there we people on both sides of the fence. My stance on the matter is that yes, it is still necessary to go through with your education because we have to know the history of what we're learning in order to understand the future and not make the same mistakes. Just like we take history classes in school, the information is not current but we still need to know our past.
