Home » 64% Of American Parents Want Crypto Education To Be Introduced in Schools
According to an analysis by BanklessTimes.com, 64% of US parents would like to see crypto education established in schools.
BanklessTimes CEO, Jonathan Merry, commented on the findings. He said, “It is encouraging to see that parents are starting to realize the importance of crypto education. With the increasing popularity of cryptocurrencies, it is important for people to understand how they work. And what better place to learn about this new technology than in school?”
The analysis also found that 40% of parents believe their children should be taught about blockchain technology and its functionality. Additionally, 35% of parents said they would like their children to learn about the metaverse and virtual worlds.
So Why the Sudden Interest in Crypto Education?
For one, blockchain technology and cryptocurrency are still relatively new and unknown to most people. And as we’ve seen with other new technologies, there is always a learning curve involved. Introducing crypto education in schools can help with the learning curve and make it easier for people to understand and use this new technology.
The present education system is designed to hone the skills required for jobs that existed a decade ago. The rate of change is too slow to catch up with the rapidly changing world of work. In the next ten years, many jobs are expected to be replaced by automation and artificial intelligence. This means that the skills required for employment in the future will be very different from the skills needed today.
