Imagine an education system where every young person could access any learning opportunity they wanted—in any school, museum, summer camp, or park, a nearby farm or a local business. Students could learn together in groups, with community members, and receive the tutoring, therapy, or support they need. They would have opportunities to explore their interests, make connections, form new relationships, and develop critical skills and knowledge. Learning would be individualized but also social and communal. Students would form friendships and discover opportunities for collaboration and leadership.
