And yet we're meant to be educating them for it. What does this mean?

I was watching a TED video and didn’t get a few of the sentences. I hope someone can explain them to me. > So I have a big interest in education, and I think we all do. We have a huge vested interest in it, partly because it's education that's meant to take us into this future that we can't grasp. If you think of it, children starting school this year will be retiring in 2065. Nobody has a clue, despite all the expertise that's been on parade for the past four days, what the world will look like in five years' time. **And yet we're meant to be educating them for it.** So the unpredictability, I think, is extraordinary. What does "And yet we're meant to be educating them for it" mean?
