building an extraordinary system, for extraordinary kids.
One size does not fit all.
It doesn’t fit anyone.
We’ve built an education model that works like a factory. We assume kids enter looking nearly the same. We file and chisel them away so they fit our model. And when they don’t, we cast them aside and focus on the average.
It’s time we break our kids out of the mold, start thinking outside the factory-model, and embrace the uniqueness that makes each kid so extraordinary. It’s time we rethink education from the ground up.
Albert Einstein once said “Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing it's stupid.” We believe that firmly. We’re asking kids to be something they aren’t. Let’s harness the extraordinary potential of every kid.
it's that simple.
instead of saying no.
we say yes.
We’re done with negativity.
Education reform has been saying “no” for decades. Saying no to educators, parents, and real solutions. Instead, we say “yes.” Yes, every kid can learn. Yes, your ideas matter. Yes, together we can make change. We know that if we wait for change to come down from above, it won’t be change in the right direction.
So how do we do it? Real change has to start from the ground up. We’re here as your resource to facilitate conversation. We’re here to foster a culture of disruptive innovation. We want to hear new ideas, new solutions, and new voices. And it can only happen when we listen to the real stakeholders in education: you.
We’re all in this together. We’re all on the same team. We
all want the same things. That’s why we’re pulling together those stakeholders, you, families, educators, and kids, into the same conversation. Talk to your neighbors, friends, and educators about education and let us guide the conversation with data, ideas from around the nation, and a ton of fun activities.
Did we say educators too? Yes, educators are the key to a better education models. They’re sick and tired of being handcuffed by a broken system. They want to be a part of the solution and who better to help? They’re experts in education and in how our kids learn. We invite educators and parents to open the dialogue together.
Let's recommit to provide educational models that see the uniqueness in our kids. The purpose of education should be to help students discover, develop, and apply their unique abilities, establishing a foundation for a life of fulfillment and success. We know you share that goal. It's time to create an environment that embraces it.
When we say "change from the ground up" we mean it. Start a group at home and get your friends and colleagues involved. Our group kits will help you discuss, decide, and evolve education in your community.
