The author likens the educational system today to "driving a multimillion dollar sports car, screaming,' Faster! Faster!' while peering fixedly into the rearview mirror. It is an awkward way to try to tell where we are, much less where we are going, and it has been sheer dumb luck that we have not smashed ourselves to bits -- so far. We have paid almost exclusive attention to the car, equipping it with all sorts of fantastic gadgets and an engine that will propel it at ever increasing speeds, but we seem to have forgotten where we wanted to go with it." The author believes that change is the most striking characteristic of our world and that the educational system has not yet recognized this. He is trying to shock it awake.
