About Five Things I’ve Learned

There are great things happening in classrooms and communities every day.

Five Things I’ve Learned  is a collection of personal reflections—many from leaders in the education community.

Though contributors come from different backgrounds, they share a life devoted to improving the fortunes of others through learning. By bringing these voices together, we aim to create a forum that both showcases these leaders and helps others as they try to make sense of the many perspectives shaping the ongoing debate about education, about learning, and about what’s possible for individuals, for organizations, and for communities around the world.

This idea is a simple one, and we hope you find this website equally simple and easy to use. We hope too that—if you find yourself inspired by something you see here—you will help spread the word.

The perspectives collected here are just part of a continuing conversation about what works in education. We’re privileged to have the chance to learn from them.
