One of the articles in 14th January 2017 The Economist begins like this, "When education fails to keep pace with technology, the result is inequality". The author even warns us that if the workers are not up-skilled and if enough of the workers fall behind, society starts to fall apart. Thus the state funded universal schooling arrived during the Industrial Revolution. But that era has gone. "Today robotics and artificial intelligence call for another education revolution" (The Economist, January 2017). It goes on to say, "This time, however, working lives are so lengthy and so fast-changing that simply cramming more schooling in at the start is not enough. People must also be able to acquire new skills throughout their careers".
