In the article,"Rigor Redefined," Tony Wanger asks the question about whether schools are preparing us enough to become the next generation of successful workers. During his research he discovered that some of the core things needed for the jobs of today don't get the required focus in modern school environments. For example, are our teachers teaching us to think critically, to ask questions? Other skills needed in the workplace are leadership and the ability to work well with others. The author thinks that schools are not training our modern scholars to have these fundamentals necessary to succeed past school.
