Sep 4, 2013

COEXISTENCE: Tom Segal of Rethink Education poses a Big (yes, with a capital B) question in Education Week: "What is the Goal of the American Education System?" He asserts that while ed-tech and ed-reform often get paired together, it may be beneficial to answer this big question first before diving into debates about how these two should co-mingle. To start it off, Segal gets answers from those in company boardrooms (including Paul Smith of Learnsprout and John Katzman of 2U and Noodle.org) and classrooms (K-1 teacher Allison MicKinnon). What do you think? Chime in below.
