Opportunity for All

We're working on that.

For children in the U.S. today, access to opportunity depends mainly on their parents' income. We are determined to change that by building a new, redesigned education system that puts the American Dream back within reach of all Americans.

Our Mission

To give every child in the U.S., particularly those living in poverty, the opportunity to succeed in education and in life.

The Education Redesign Lab at the Harvard Graduate School of Education is dedicated to advancing a new model for American education.

The Challenge

The American Dream is slipping away. Our education system was designed for a different era, and it doesn't meet the needs of the 21st century knowledge economy.

Our Vision

We want to redefine education in America. Until now, our concept of education has been limited to what takes place within the walls of our schools.
