In addition to building new systems we also need to work actively to reform and improve our existing institutions. Too many politicians and educators, and those backing them, are still stuck in Industrial Age thinking. They want to patch the existing system instead of making the big changes required to get to the Knowledge. That's not just unfortunate, but downright dangerous. Propping up a system beyond its useful life means that the transition, which will eventually become inevitable, will be much more volatile and worse for everyone.
