The Challenge

Every learner is unique — full of talents and passions waiting to be discovered. Education, for children and adults, should be tailored to help all learners identify their gifts and pursue their passions. We seek to catalyze a movement of social entrepreneurs accelerating new, low-cost methods of learning, and to empower families with the resources to pursue an education that works best for them.

Focus Areas

  • Individualized education
    Increasing the diversity of educational options
  • Residential assignment
    Your ZIP code shouldn’t determine your educational opportunity
  • School finance
    Empowering families with resources
