Are Educators Doing The Right Thing?

As I watched the following video this morning, I wondered, as an educator are we truly preparing our students for the future or is this young man pointing out just what our education is missing.  This young man named Thomas Suarez taught himself to program in multiple languages and has been creating iphone apps.  Has already become quite successful at his endeavor and begun looking to the future and future projects. Yet as he puts it many of the kids his age have no idea were to look today to learn how to do something like this because it is not taught to students. Is the lack of technology taught in schools going to hinder our next generation? Watch the video below and tell me what you think.
