Innovation and Education...Imagine That!

Here's an absolutely captivating look at what it means to combine innovation with education!

Our public school system across the country has become ensnared by a lock-step mindset that suggests that the only way we can prove that our children are learning is by standardized testing. Standardized tests are one way and should not be the sole measure of what our children have learned or how well they will do in public school or college. This shows a different way.

It actually is in line with my thoughts on testing in my latest Dallas Morning News column.

Can every school be like this? Rather than answering 'yes' or 'no', maybe adults should be asking 'why not?'

Over the next five years, Texas will spend close to $500 million on standardized testing...can we honestly say we can't do better?
