Failure to Innovate

I’m very pleased to see that education reform has been in the news lately but I’m concerned at the direction the dialog is taking.

Too many pundits, educators and leaders are focused on ways we can reform the education system as we know it.  Couldn’t we set our sights a little higher and consider education innovation rather than education reform?  Shouldn’t we be asking if the fundamentals of school (homework, classes, desks, subject area teachers) do what we need them to do?

These are the questions I try to explore and (I hope) begin to answer in the video in my most recent post over at
