What are we educating for?

I've been thinking lately that what we need kids to learn is not facts or theories but skills. There is some foundation knowledge that may remain relevant long after graduation, but it will be far more important for the kids to be

  • flexible, questioning, and able to change their understanding of what is true,
  • able to learn new skills and material, and
  • interested in the world.
