- Is the new GED test going to force us to innovate our instruction and delivery of services?
- Shouldn't we be innovating anyway?
- What are the economic incentives for embracing technology? New markets, new funding streams, and an updating of the adult education brand?

Since the clip has been removed from YouTube, the astrophysicist said of the 60s:
[the space program] transformed the culture in the USA in that decade to be one of innovation and discovery. And when you have that as part of your culture, you innovate. And when you innovate, you are responsible for birthing entire new economies that drive your nation's wealth.
Doesn't that sound good to you? Entire new economies that drive adult education's future?
