Time to Rethink Education: Casting a Vision for Learning and Work in the Future

May 6, 2018View for printing

In a room full of varied interests, experiences and diverse opinions, students and educators sat with business leaders, advocates, innovators, and critics to find common ground and consider uncommon approaches for education in the future.

"Welcome to Rethink, the most important event on the planet," said Kauffman Foundation Vice President of Education Aaron North to open the Rethink Ed convening in Kansas City. He wasn't exaggerating. In North's view, there is no more pressing issue than the future of education and no more chances to get it wrong. He challenged participants - the group ranged from visionaries drawn from across the country to ninth graders who came from their school just blocks away - to rethink education and shape a collective vision for the future.
