The Schools Project started with the simple goal of looking at the field of education through a different lens; a lens of understanding, a lens of collaboration, a lens of exploration. The goal would be met by old fashioned means: boots on the ground, traveling to rural and urban schools, talking with educators, gaining a grasp of how this educational process works around the world. Of what inspires educators. Of what resources are critically lacking. Of what kind of connections could be made between foreign schools in their search for pedagogical answers.
