(1994) A WorldClass education system is essential to Florida’s future. WorldClass recognizes that virtually no one is satisfied with Florida’s public schools. Students are not gaining the skills they need for the jobs of the 21st century. Employers are not finding educated graduates who can help them compete. Taxpayers are not receiving an adequate return on their education investment. Many educators themselves are dissatisfied and frustrated at not having the flexibility, training or tools to teach our children well.
We must now use our business know-how to lead an education revolution in our own communities. WorldClass provides the timely strategy for a new era of business-led school reform. Worldclass will train business leaders to become “champions” for WorldClass schools in Florida’s communities. These leaders will be in the vanguard of a new generation of business leaders who will accelerate the school restructuring process in Florida.
