Creativity, problem solving and developing our imagination is just as important and it needs to happen alongside if we expect kids to solve the problems of the 21st century. Literacy by itself is not enough for students. Today’s high school graduates are entering a workforce that has changed drastically in the last couple decades. It will continue to evolve as technology becomes more advanced, globalization becomes more prevalent, and the basic workforce expectations transform. Students will need to know how to adapt to the unfamiliar future.

This is a bit of a disadvantage to the education system because 21st-century skills have been used for all countries. Students with less exposure to the 21st-century skills may cause our generation to be powerless to compete with other generation of nations. Therefore, researchers want to see what are the challenges of 21st-century skills faced by teachers.This 21st-century skill is a transformation made in renewing existing educational standards where the 21st-century education system is more flexible, creative, challenging and more complex. In addressing the growing education world, education needs to be rebuilt to meet the needs of students in the 21st-century world.For example, each school needs to be exposed to a life-related project-based curriculum aimed at attracting students in addressing real-world problems and current issues.

Cultural Diversity and the American Educational System In many of today’s schools there has been a push to teach one form or another, about cultural diversity or cultural awareness. This new trend is in many schools across the country, from California to New York. I will speak specifically about how schools are ill equipped to implement cultural diversity as a part of their curriculum and how it raises more problems then it solves. Schools are ill equipped to implement their cultural diversity goals for two reasons: the budget for the school is decreasing year by year, and many schools across the country find it hard enough to teach students about academics, let alone cultural awareness and emotional health. Everybody faces trade-offs.

Since this is an ongoing debate, there are both pros and cons of having a change happen. This paper will mainly focus on the benefits of why having a year-round calendar is better for the students. Debate on whether or not to change all school calendars to year-round or keep the traditional calendars has been going on for over the past twenty years. It only stopped during the Great Depression and World War II. Knowing that the first year-round school was created earlier, there is plenty of history for research about school calendars.
Army was more or less just a sign of pride and power. If Germany had to back down on army size, it would make them appear weak and powerless, which is every countries largest fear when it comes to battle or competition of any type.Also, if drafting was now illegal, and all soldiers had to be volunteers, they might not find as good of soldiers and maybe not even enough people that would want to participate without being forced. To go along with that, forfeiting their overseas empire down also made them seem more vulnerable and less powerful. Germany also worried because not being able to have armed vehicles, submarines, or aircrafts seemed unsafe. If they were not prepared to defend themselves at some point, and they were attacked with no armour, they had no chance at saving themselves.
(2010), lack of financial literacy was one of the main causes of the financial disturbance. Crisis, with which people are suffering now, is not financial. In fact, it is a crisis of the education.

In a few months I will be leaving school and heading out into the real world. I knew that I needed to do this task to the best of my ability to ensure myself that I am ready for the responsibilities of adulthood. As time passed by I learnt more about the situation at hand and realised that most of our problems we face are actually due to our own actions. I discovered a common trend amongst many of us.
