Designing Education


The silos and conventions of college and of primary and secondary education have not evolved fundamentally in hundreds of years. It is no secret that the education system is under great pressure to change. But numerous obstacles remain at every level, from tortuous academic publishing requirements for tenure to unreasonable union demands to paralyzed legislators. A recent McKinsey paper points out that “only six in ten students at four-year institutions are graduating within six years today. Most employers say graduates lack the skills they need. Tuition has risen far faster than inflation or household earnings for two decades.” This is leaving many with tremendous debt and even more questions about the value of education in the twenty-first century.

Time to redesign.

This issue is dedicated to those brave souls who are taking on the establishment, overturning industrial-era assumptions, and challenging us all to become a more open and creative society capable of placing our children ahead of our biases.
