The Future of Education: What’s Next?Greater Houston has become known nationwide for its innovative schools and initiatives – home of four Broad Prizes for urban education, three high-performing charter networks, and scores of valuable public-private partnerships. Yet a stubborn problem persists: An alarmingly low percentage of our public school students are achieving at levels that put them on track for success beyond high school. In this year’s series, we explore What’s Next. What is next for teaching and learning to ensure our kids are ready for the decades to come. Many of the jobs our current students will hold, do not even exist yet. How to we prepare our students to critically think, problem solve and be creative in a world that will demand resourcefulness and flexibility? Hear about the current thinking, models and designs of teaching and learning that are already talking on this fundamental shift. You are invited to be our guest at this year’s series of free, public lectures. We hope you will join us for these though-provoking events, hosted by the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and sponsored by Chevron. View videos from past speakers
