Recruiting the Classroom – Idea 9/365

Not everyone in the world is lucky enough to have access to education, and even so, not all of that education is of the caliber one might hope. The process of being educated for 20 years for a job that you will hold for 40 years is also gone, and instead educators around the world are struggling to make current education at all levels relevant and helpful. This idea might support some of that.

Companies should be hiring kids and teens to work for them. The idea would be that certain tasks that could be performed by kids (and I am not talking about assembly lines!) would be outsourced to schools. For example, testing of software, proofreading of articles, concept building, research and so on.

In turn the companies would donate money to the school, which would be guaranteed to go towards better paid teachers and higher quality computers/environment. This would expose kids and teenagers to some of the tasks being performed in companies today on an ongoing basis, and it might even make them feel proud to be part of something.
