High school sucks. It’s socially awkward, culturally confusing, and academically irrelevant. And though the first two might largely be an inescapable part of the teenage experience, the third is of critical concern to both the stability of society and the health of the economy. Which is why we wanted to spend some time learning more about what’s happening in the world of primary education and the ways in which it’s affecting the future of work.

In this episode, we’re joined by Connie Liu, founder of Project Invent – a non-profit who’s stated mission is to “…empower students with the 21st-century skills to succeed individually and make an impact globally, through invention… creating a generation of fearless, compassionate problem solvers.”

A graduate of both MIT and Stanford, as well as a former high-school teacher at the Nueva School in Silicon Valley, Connie has been a part of some of the most innovative educational institutions in the world. That’s given her a unique perspective about both the current state and the future of high school education. Her insights and observations highlight the challenges, opportunities, and promise of where primary education is headed and what that means for us all.
