They say it takes a village to raise a child, but they never talk about how it takes a village simply to educate one, too.
I’ll be brief today, as the depth of my gratitude and reflection can hardly be captured in words. My school, AltSchool, has recently announced our new round of funding. We’re proud to announce that we’ve raised $100 million dollars in funding, and while it certainly speaks to the dedication and passion that a rather small group of people has committed over the past year, I think it says much, much more than that.
It shows that reimagining education takes the collective; it takes a group of people coming together towards a common vision — to help kids feel heard and seen through a personalized education.
I am so honored to be a part of this group of disruptive innovators, problem-seekers, and visionaries.
