Children and young adults are incredibly diverse in their learning styles, strengths, and career aims. However, many of them are underserved by our education system which insists on treating everyone the same. How can we create a marketplace that allows families the agency to pursue educational alternatives, encourages entrepreneurs to create innovative ways of teaching and learning, and makes education accessible and equitable for all students?

Join PRI’s Young Leaders Circle and America’s Future Foundation-San Francisco Chapter for an evening of networking and a fireside chat on Educational Entrepreneurship featuring education thought-leaders who are re-thinking what school should be and helping students prepare for the future of jobs in our rapidly changing economy.
