New approaches to education are needed to prepare students for the world they will face when they become adults, two local school superintendents told members of the Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce Thursday. “The world has changed and I would suggest to you that we had better change,” Hall County Schools Superintendent Will Schofield said during the chamber’s meeting at Chattahoochee Country Club. “The Asian tigers are knocking at our doors; Eastern Europe is waking up; India wants everything you have, And we better start looking for ways to train our children to have the skills and capacities and the character to compete on the worldwide market.”
