The members of the Futures of School Reform Group represent leading thinkers from the academic, business, philanthropic, government, and public-policy sectors. Organized by the Harvard Graduate School of Education, they are contributing to a seven-part opinion series on education reform that is being published in Education Week’s Commentary pages. In this opinion series, they will expand upon and discuss their visions for the future of schools. Meet the contributors and read their invitation to join the discussion. (The Futures of School Reform ceased publishing in June 2011.)
As we close the blog, I wanted to thank everyone involved. Elizabeth Rich at Education Week was really important in seeing the potential for this kind of venture, the contributors did their part by laying out a wide range of potential visions, and the commenters have greatly enriched the conversation in their contributions. Helen Malone did great work in administering the blog, as well as writing a post. Thanks also to the Hewlett and Spencer Foundations for funding this work.
