What will I learn?


Using inspirations from natural ecosystems, we’ll design approaches that accelerate progress toward greater equity for our nation’s children.

What do rain forests and school districts have in common?  How can education reformers learn from starfish?  Education systems in this country are not serving all students equally.  In this course, students and instructors will explore opportunities for increasing equity in education ecosystems through examining analogies in natural ecosystems and working with a diverse array of real world experts to develop new approaches to accelerating equity for students.
