Is Our Education System Holding Us Back?

Host Ajay Gupta discusses flaws within the US Education system and how technology can help fix them with Arvin Vohra, author of ‘The Equation for Excellence’

Innovations in business and personal technology are occurring faster than we can comprehend or keep up with. Everyone claims that innovation is critical for thriving business and a growing economy. As the business landscape become more and more digital, we need to understand how to be innovative in this new ecosystem and how to use technology to innovate in all areas of business, from sales and marketing to product development and customer service.

This week, we speak with education expert, founder of Arvin Vohra Education, and author of The Equation for Excellence, Arvin Vohra, about the flaws within education system and what is needed to fix them.

There have been countless accusations by the press lately that the US education system is not properly serving its students and the nation as a whole. These accusations are being heard and echoed in corporate America, on college and university campuses, and perhaps most telling, in living rooms across the country.

?          What has gone wrong in US Education system?
?          Why are so many people abandoning a college career?
?          How is it that the US outspends the world on education while still ranking so low?
?          Most importantly, how do we remedy these shortcomings?

This week on Technology Today, we look at these questions and ask how technology can foster greater educational innovation to help the country's schools regain their place as the best in the world.
