Special Report: 10 Big Ideas in Education

Welcome to Education Week’s inaugural edition of “10 Big Ideas in Education.” Part opinion writing, part conversation, and part journalism analysis, this special report explores game-changing disruptions to the field of education that have the potential to shake up the schoolhouse and the classroom.

Presented in no particular order, they are meant to stir conversation or prompt you to think about your work in a new way. We hope that you’ll find reading the report as interesting as we did putting it together.
