I predict that schools in the future would be very different from our current system. Our system, a hundred years from now, will be viewed as an inefficient way of learning. In the year 2100 science and technology will probably have advanced to the point where it changes our day-to-day lifestyle. We wouldn't need paper since it will be replaced with flat screens and PDA's, and we will have solved the fossil fuel crisis since someone will discover a new form of propulsion much cleaner and efficient than gasoline.

Education will most likely take on a new shape as well. Desks replaced with computer screens, teachers replaced by AI (Artificial Intelligence) teaching at a pace that we will probably not be able to keep up. So how will our future ancestors keep up? Cybernetic implants in the brain right from birth, this will ensure that a generation of super-intelligent humans will survive the uncertain future.

School itself will be built differently, instead of a school that holds around 2000 students, school then will hold upwards of 15,000 students due to the population growth by 2100. Instead of having 30-40 students per class, each class will have a little under 100 students. Subjects that we think are radical ideas now will be taught as part of the curriculum, such as ESP (Extra Sensory Perception) and telepathy just to name a few. School would also start around the age of 2 and end at the age of 16 since 14 years of education will be the equivalent of elementary to 10th year of university we have now. A hundred years from now we will probably have well build our foundation of space exploration and subject such as Astrophysics and Quantum physics will be compulsory through the 14 years of...
