    the least of our worries

    Please make the following in red clear for me.

    This emphasis on personal growth and personal responsibility is key because we are in the midst of an education revolution... these days, antiquated classrooms are the least of our worries. "Suddenly degrees aren't worth anything," says Robinson. When I was a student, if you had a degree, you had a job. If you didn't have a job, it was because you didn't want one."

    Is this saying "old-style education is something we never have to worry?" It sounds strange.

    Thank you.

    No, it's saying old, out of date classrooms are not the biggest problem in education today. They are a problem, but not the most important one.
