About The Big Idea

Built in partnership with educators, youth, families, and community members from across the country, Education Reimagined offers The Big Idea as a place to begin imagining what this future of learning could look like and make possible. One where the community and world are the playgrounds for learning; where equity, human dignity, and liberation are cultivated; and young people, no matter who they are or where they are from, are supported to thrive and contribute in an interconnected world.

That’s the Big Idea. Let’s stop reforming around the edges of a system built for standardization and stratification and, instead, invent one on the foundations of equity, community, and youth empowerment!

We’re not saying it will be easy or even that we know the way there. But, we’re ready to go for it. Are you?

About Education Reimagined

Education Reimagined is a national nonprofit organization, based in Washington DC, harnessing the power of visionaries across the country to create a new design for public education that is centered around learners and their communities, versus schools. Since its inception, Education Reimagined has successfully furthered the effort to codify, advance, and elevate the field of learner-centered education. Its work now is focused on coalescing the partners, marshaling the funding and resources, and accelerating the R&D process to establish community-based, learner-centered ecosystems as a viable, accountable and sustainable design for public education.
