Education is the last holdout from the digital revolution
The same technologies that transformed every other aspect of modern life can transform education, provide our businesses with the talent they need to thrive, and give hundreds of millions of young people at the fringes of prosperity the opportunity to make their own mark on this global economy
our challenge is to learn from what works best. My company is determined to try in a big way.
