During a presidential election year, there couldn’t be a better time to talk about and imagine a new vision for learning in the U.S. But in the first eight debates, more than 175,000 words were spoken, but “education” was only mentioned 64 times.
This Education Playbook outlines visions and policy recommendations for presidential candidates to consider. The playbook includes five visions for learning and consequent policy recommendations, which were developed from conversations with hundreds of teachers, administrators, district leaders, non-profit organizations, state education agencies and policymakers throughout the country. The visions also take into account KnowledgeWorks future forecast, The Future of Learning: Education in the Era of Partners in Code, which considers learning in 2025.
