Bill Gates provides a good overview of the challenges facing higher education.
Most of us actually working in higher education are already painfully aware of these realities. This is a good resource to share with people outside the academy. Social media makes this easier than ever. Gates has published this presentation on Scribd, a document-sharing website. Scribd offers a number of tools that make it easy for people to share documents on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ or via embedding as I've done here. Get a free Scribd account and you can publish documents there as well.
