A Roadmap to the Future of Education

Takes a fresh look at our nation’s schools, eschewing the negativity so
often found in the world of education today.

“The future comes at us fast — which means school reformers don’t have time to wait. They need real tools in real time.  That’s why Moving the Rock is so important. Grant Lichtman has guidance for anyone — teachers, parents, administrators, government officials — intent on helping young people succeed not ‘someday,’ but today.”

— Daniel H. Pink, best-selling author of Drive and A Whole New Mind

Moving the Rock

Seven Levers WE Can Press to Transform Education

In 20-25 years K12 education can look dramatically different picture than the institution we call “school” today, and far beyond anything that most of us are thinking about. This is the future we have to plan for, and the trajectory we must initiate by pressing on big, audacious, non-traditional levers.

This book describes each of these seven levers to revolutionizing schools:

  • The Demand Side of the Equation
  • School-Community Learning Laboratories
  • Free, Universal Access to Knowledge and Curriculum
  • Measuring Success and Re-tooling College Admissions
  • Teacher Training for Deeper Learning.
  • Connectivity
  • New Skills of Education Leadership

At the end of each of each chapter there are one or more Challenges, ways that each of us—parents, students, teachers, administrators, philanthropists, members of the university and business communities, and social networking activists—can collectively turn the pioneering work of others into school transformation at scale.
