Reinventing School is a weekly video interview series that addresses big questions: what should young people learn, and what is the best way to get that job done? The series features expert professionals and young people fully engaged in every discussion.

 

We started Reinventing School to help parents, teachers, and other education professionals navigate the Coronavirus disruption. With each episode, I am learning how much better school and learning can be—and asking a lot of clarifying questions. As the series evolves, the tools for large-scale change are becoming apparent, and the need for every student to take charge of his, her or their education has never been more important.
