What does “school reform” mean to you? To some, it means complete reinvention of our school system; to others, it means taking what already works and building on that.

The Future of Schooling looks at four possible scenarios for education in 2020, including school reform and the role of standards, and how those scenarios affect the role of teachers. Here, as part of Solution Tree’s AuthorSpeak series, Hubbell talks about the book and how McREL first became interested in scenario planning.
