I’ve heard that the way math is taught in schools has completely changed since I learned to add, subtract, multiply, and divide. That seems crazy to me, but I know that there is a ton of room for innovation in the way that we educate children. While there are certainly some great for-profit companies working on this problem, there are also some great non-profits. One is Digital Promise, a Washington, DC based organization that “supports comprehensive research and development to benefit lifelong learners and provide Americans with the knowledge and skills needed to compete in the global economy.” Digital Promise is a bipartisan effort that is authorized by Congress, so it has serious support.
Digital Promise was founded in 1999 when “the Carnegie Corporation of New York partnered with the Century, Knight, MacArthur, and Open Society foundations.” Since then they’ve launched a number of initiatives with the main focus being on the League of Innovative Schools. If you want to learn more about the effectiveness of these programs, check out Digital Promise’s 2012 Annual Report.
