My 'Why' by Steve Gardner
The world needs every teen to reach their full potential, and college prep, should not hold them back.
College prep and education should be the vehicle that gives teens the self-efficacy and other skills they need to know they can solve problems that matter to them in the real world.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is already showing us how disruptive it can be. Education will need to adjust quickly, because knowledge alone will soon be unimportant. Problem solving and humanity will become more important as well.
Teens have tremendous advantages (like a sense of curiosity and adventure, a willingness to try new things, a desire to become great, etc.) that are mostly wasted in the education industry, and especially in the common approach to college prep.
We need to stop missing out on this incredible opportunity to empower our teens. College prep is the best way to empower them, and the approach we take in the Ivy League Challenge (find core values, begin working to solve real problems that violate those core values, etc) is the best way to give them the skills they actually need.
