Prepare Our Kids for Life, Not Standardized Tests
Ted Dintersmith is a leading venture capitalist who during the 2015-16 school year traveled to all 50 states visiting 200 schools. What he observed is that the core purpose of our schools has been lost in a wave of testing, data and accountability. This year, he published a book about his journey titled What School Could Be: Insights and Inspiration from Teachers across America. In this Tedx Talk, he underscores the potential for our children and our country if we educate to prepare our kids for life instead of for standardized tests.
