Reminds me of a Drucker quote in Tom Peters' book Re-Imagine:

"My ancestors were printers in Amsterdam from 1510 or so until 1750, and during that entire time they didn’t have to learn anything new. The average knowledge worker will outlive the average employing organization. This is the first time in history that’s happened. … So the center of gravity of higher education is shifting from the education of the young to the continuing education of adults.”

It's one of my favorite quotes and one that deeply inspired eduFire.
