In 2001, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) identified scenarios for the future of schooling as part of its What Schools for the Future? report. The OECD, for those who may not be aware, are those same people based in Paris that put out the PISA scores that compare and rank countries' education systems.
Regardless of what we might think about PISA and ranking systems overall, the 2001 report is worth a look as it proposed three clusters of scenarios for where education may be in the not so distant future—education as a system and also as a social and economic enterprise. These clusters are the status quo, re-schooling, and de-schooling.
