'The World Out There': What Does the Future Hold for Our Children?


CHATHAM, NJ - Chatham kindergarten children will be high school graduates in 2026 and college graduates in 2030. What does the future hold for these children?

Dr. Michael LaSusa, Chatham superintendent of schools, presented trending global statistics and asked how these children will compete "academically, professionally and socioemotionally in a global environment."

The lecture was the first in a series on the subject of "Future-Focused Education" being sponsored by the Chatham Education Foundation, presented Monday night in the Chatham High auditorium.

What is needed to help our children succeed?"
