Schools that are transforming the learning experience and working for all students
Unlike in the first half of the twentieth century, a high school diploma is no longer sufficient to secure a good-paying job. In today’s knowledge-based economy, all students, no matter their background or career aspirations, need some form of postsecondary education. Ensuring that students are prepared for today’s global job market means providing them with a quality K-12 education that provides them with the deep content knowledge they need to succeed after high school and the critical thinking, collaboration, and communication skills that today’s jobs demand.
In the videos below, see schools and educators that are preparing their students for the future by connecting traditional classroom learning to the real world; teaching students to learn by doing; allowing students to move at their own speed; tapping deeply into student interests; and emphasizing self-reflection.
