Brookings: Leapfrogging Inequality

Rebecca Winthrop, Adam Barton and Eileen McGivney investigate remaking education to help young people thrive. In an age of rising inequality, getting a good education increasingly separates the haves from the have nots.

The report examines the possibility of leapfrogging—harnessing innovation to rapidly accelerate educational progress—to ensure that all young people develop the skills they need for a fast-changing world.
