Education system is not adequate

This is a quote from Pew Research


"Our educational system is not adequately preparing us for work of the future, and our political and economic institutions are poorly equipped to handle these hard choices".



As an educator, I am concerned with whether our students gain the skills required for a quickly changing workforce.  

However, when my youngest son, who is in year 10 ChromeCasted this video "Humans  need not Apply" onto  the family TV, the Pew Research statement carried some extra impact.

Will the education my son gains completing Yr 12 and university prepare him for this? 
He will graduate  in 7 years time.
