Our Vision

We believe that improving education is the key to the survival of the the human race.

We envision a new world of learning, one where students become lifelong learners and develop 21st-century skills. It's a world where innovation is the rule, not the exception. It's a world where schools provide rigorous project-based learning, social and emotional learning, and access to new technology. It's a world where students and parents, teachers and administrators, policymakers, and the people they serve are all empowered with a shared vision to change education for the better.

We call this place Edutopia, and we provide not just the vision for this new world of learning but the information, the evidence, and the community connections to make it a reality.

In particular, in the 21st century, we believe three skills are fundamental
