Goals

  • Reinvent pK-12 Education
    Addressing primary and secondary education will enable us to reach children at the most critical time of their lives, and to prepare them for the future we will leave in our trail amidst economic, political, technological, and planetary change.
  • Renew Higher Education
    Transforming higher education will allow us to prepare the next generation of professionals who are employable, and who can create employment, while also becoming critical thinkers and leaders for the world.
  • Revitalize Workplace Learning
    Our reach to workplace learning will inform us of what educational standards we need to fulfill the potential of the next generation, while also keeping the workforce productive, engaged, and responsive to changing industries.
