‘What School Could Be’ Review at Inside Higher Ed

 In News

“When it comes to education reform, we could perhaps consider Ted Dintersmith the anti-Gates.

Dintersmith recognizes education is a human process experienced by individuals working with and relating to each other. By doing this, he hopes to better prepare students for the coming “innovation era.”
