Once the envy of the world, American schools are now in trouble. Test scores show our kids lag far behind their peers in other industrialized countries. In a new age of information, rapid innovation, and globalization, how can we prepare our children to compete? As the divide between rich and poor grows wider, how can schools today help students of all backgrounds meet the challenges of tomorrow? NOVA, a production of WGBH Boston, explores how the science of learning and technological innovations are transforming the way we teach and learn, and are creating a new vision of the future of education for all children.
NOVA: SCHOOL OF THE FUTURE, a special two-hour presentation narrated by LeVar Burton, premieres Wednesday, September 14, 2016 at 9PM ET/8C on PBS (check local listings). Join the conversation @novapbs; #SchoolFuturePBS; #SpotlightEduPBS @CarnegieCorp
