Enriching Education: Teachers Around America Are Disrupting Public School Education

Innovative educators in public schools across the United States are challenging the rules, pushing the boundaries and bridging the gap between opportunity and income for their students in the Age of AI. That’s what Ted Dintersmith discovered when he visited 50 states and hundreds of schools in one year while writing a book about all that was wrong with the US public school system.  Author and former Venture Capitalist Dintersmith, who has expressed growing concerns about America becoming a country “of the rich, for the rich and by the rich,” believes radical change is needed to prepare America’s youth for a world of automated solutions. Youth will need to “invent their own distinctive way to add value to their community, employer, or customer.”
In an exclusive new interview with CMRubinWorld founder C.M.Rubin, Dintersmith shares his stories of rebellious American educators reaching far beyond the status quo of standardized testing for college admissions to find new ways to ignite passion and curiosity in their students.
