For as long as we can remember, we've been told that the system is irretrievably broken. We've all heard the numbers: One in three students will drop out of high school. One in two students enrolled in college will earn a degree.
But make no mistake, there is hope on the horizon.
In a series of 10 profiles, we look at the frontier of innovation in education and how learners of all ages will likely be impacted in the years to come.
From policymakers in Washington, D.C., revamping the No Child Left Behind Act to Alice Waters, whose Edible Schoolyards are changing how students are fed-real change is afoot. Perhaps one of the biggest drivers is the internet, which is revolutionizing not only web-based learning but expanding the definition of who can be a student-be it a working parent, or a veteran of war.
We hope you'll join us in making education innovative again.
