Entrepreneurial ventures such as The New Teacher Project, New Leaders for New Schools, and the KIPP Academies are expanding the boundaries of traditional education models by creating innovative frameworks for schooling. Yet federal and state regulations and policies can often hinder rather than support the growth of education innovations. These barriers must be removed to better serve American students.
A new report by the American Enterprise Institute, the Center for American Progress, New Profit Inc., and Public Impact offers politically viable solutions to these challenges. At this event, entrepreneurs shared their experience in changing the traditional education landscape and, together with education policy experts, offered their perspective on how federal and state policy can better support the success and growth of innovations in education.
