MyWays asks the four big questions challenging public education in the United States today and distills oceans of research to bring you trustworthy answers and actionable ideas.


WHY the urgent need for fundamental change? WHAT does that imply about the skills students must develop to succeed after high school? HOW can schools enable students to build this richer, deeper set of competencies? HOW can they measure progress, in ways that support the learning?

Use the research, tools, and community you’ll find here to launch your school-change initiative and reimagine your learning and assessment designs. The value of MyWays lies primarily in the rich discussions, collaborative development, and transformative culture-building it can catalyze within your team, school, district, and community. We encourage you to think of MyWays as more of a helpful friend than a blueprint; more of a conversation than a report; more journey than destination.

The kids are counting on us. Frankly, so are the adults. If we only know one thing about life in the 2030s and 2040s, it’s that it will be exceedingly different from today. There’s no more important work than preparing young people to shape those differences in positive ways.
