This paper lists the basic or foundation skills that future citizens must have, according to the Secretary's Commission on Achieving Necessary Skills: communications skills, mathematical skills, problem-solving and decision-making skills, and personal traits such as responsibility, self-esteem, and self-management. It then shows how these skills can be applied through a description of a fictional company and some of its employees' tasks. The report emphasizes the complexity of work and the responsibility and self-direction that employees need in order to succeed. (KC)
