ABSTRACT
The article presents the authors' argument that the emphasis on "21st-century skills" will sacrifice long-term educational gains with the appearance of short-term progress without better curriculum, better teaching and better tests. They argue that critical thinking and problem solving have been components of human progress throughout history. It also mentions that educators and policy makers must ensure that content is not shortchanged for the pursuit of acquisition of skills.
