Today is a day of many legislative talks to come as President Obama discusses the famed climate change and education shifts to integrate common core. The importance of both are wrapped in an educational cloth of critical thinking, shifting to new ideas and aptitude.
The big discussion of climate change and carbon reduction to manage emissions is a business shift to comprehensive management, following manufacturing and processes to its natural end the environment. The role of business in climate is to effectuate health and safety outside of its facilities – evolutionary, not revolutionary. The outcome is responsive responsibility to drive efficiency. The EPA will be tasked to complete this plan and take the hits on the costs to implement the life cycle processes of emissions within business operations.
The common core is challenged to deliver old standards on a new model of educating our youth to be able to manage the content and demands of society first starting with basic reading, math and critical thinking. The Common Core is defined as “The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them.” This formulaic approach intertwines math, English and language arts.
The aptitude to engender new processes in education is again seeing the student beyond the classrooms into the work room- evolutionary, not revolutionary. Again, responsive responsibility to drive efficiency in education. The student as customer or stakeholder model has always be a vague innocuous concept. Students are customers seeking a value proposition and the stakeholders are society who benefit from the value produced over the long term.
The consideration of climate and common core are legislatively intended to posit new outcomes for national protections. The work is determining a standard platform that can be implemented and managed to achieve value intended over time. Both the Common Core and Climate are reliant on a vibrant technology platform of networks, energy and a smarter grid to under-gird the climate and educational data download and usability of that knowledge.
The pressure falls to the President to attract an appetite for education and climate change. Both are integral to the dynamics and needs of business. Education and climate are pipeline issues that are measured and managed as a byproduct of the demands of production. Nations that fail to manage demands and are temperate to push and innovate are relics of the history they produced.
