How can we fix the education system today? My readers, friends, and colleagues talk about that question all the time, and many of them ask me that same thing. To answer this question, we have to understand what’s broken and what people care about in the education system. So here’s my question right back to them: Why does education matter to you?
Over the past few weeks we’ve gone out and asked the world this single, straightforward question. To compile the responses, we’ve created a forum for people to lend their voice and a multi-media technology platform to get the word out in a meaningful way.
Our website is totally free to read, share, translate, print and, most of all, use to start an essential conversation about why education is important.
It took a lot to get it to you. We’ve gotten help from a few MBA students, law students, journalism students and undergrads. So I’m encouraging you to take a few minutes to check it out, and after you read it, I’ll ask you to put up a story of your own.
There’s never been a more pivotal time to move our communities forward by showing how much education matters. Please help us in spreading that message.
