TedXMac 2017: Sarah Morin & Will Lowry, The Future of High School Education


Sarah Morin & Will Lowry, The Future of High School Education

  • High Schools lack direct purpose to life outside of the classroom
  • AP classes are no longer a differentiator (4 million AP tests taken this past year)
  • independent study could be a solution - study outside of a classroom in the community
  • only 3.45% of local students participate in independent study
  • re-frame what an independent study is and turn it into a differentiator
  • business leaders should take initiative to give students an opportunity to work with them
  • many students are leaving the state of Michigan because they are not connected to local businesses
  • schools should be open to having students leave campus to work in businesses
  • what’s next - high schoolers need to believe in themselves
  • the community needs to believe in the potential of our students
