What School Could Be (1/12)

What School Could Be, a book written by Ted Dintersmith, a former leading venture capitalist and producer of the critically-acclaimed documentary Most Likely to Succeed, offers an inspiring vision of what our teachers and students can accomplish if trusted with the challenge of developing the skills and ways of thinking needed to thrive in a world of dizzying technological change.

Dintersmith documents his unprecedented trip across all 50 states of America, visiting over 200 schools in a single school year. All across the country, he met teachers in ordinary settings doing extraordinary things, innovating in classrooms no matter the circumstance, and cultivating real learning both inside and outside the classroom.
