A panel discussion on What School Could Be and the intersections between investing and the future of education

What actually happens when a community seriously invests in training young people to be not just #futureready, but shape the future?

Hear from panelists who will talk about the intersection of investing and movements to reimagine education towards student-driven learning and real world challenges.
