In this episode, we welcome Ted Dintersmith. Ted is a film producer, author, and speaker on education and innovation.
Ted founded the nonprofit What School Could Be after realizing that there was a gap in standard education needing to be filled. What School Could Be seeks to reimagine what a classroom, a test, and a student all look like. Instead of stifling children’s interests and curiosity as the current public education system does, we need to allow each student to create their own path of learning and become purposeful contributors to society based on their own interests, talents, and potential.
As an organization, What School Could Be seeks to amplify the work of educators forging paths of innovation for their students. The purpose of school isn’t to provide data for our policymakers to use for funding and bills, the purpose of school is to help children live happy, fulfilling lives.
