What is Education? Insights from the world’s greatest minds

As we seek to refine and reform today’s system of education, we would do well to ask, “What is education?” Our answers may provide insights that get to the heart of what matters for 21st century children and adults alike.

Along with academic skills, the educational journey from kindergarten through college is a time when young people develop many interconnected abilities.
