What School Could Be


‘What School Could Be: Insights and Inspiration from Teachers across America’ (2018) is a thought-provoking and inspiring book that takes an in-depth look at the state of the education system in America. Written by innovation expert Ted Dintersmith, the book is based on his travels across all 50 states during the 2016 school year, during which he met with teachers and students to gain a better understanding of the challenges and opportunities facing education today.

Filled with amazing stories and conversations with innovative teachers, What School Could Be offers a vision of what education could be, and a model for how to achieve it. It is a must-read for anyone who cares about the future of education and the success of our children. Overall, it is a thought-provoking and inspiring book that will challenge and inform readers, and ultimately move them to action.

Dintersmith claims that America’s clock is ticking:

“Our archaic model of education trains our kids for a world that no longer exists, and accelerating advances in technology are eliminating millions of jobs. But the trailblazing of many American educators gives us reasons for hope.”
