I recently learned about an organization Prisma that is working on a highly innovative school concept. They have a vision to create a virtual school (with powerful in-person components) that customizes to each student’s interests, learning style, and life goals. They want to learn from as many families as possible about their educational hopes and frustrations. If you’re interested in completing their brief survey or doing a phone interview (phone interviewees will receive a $50 Amazon voucher as a thank you), please look here https://survey.survicate.com/551829d2cbcfe122/.
They are also forming a student advisory panel to help them design the model in large part based on input from teens - both who are currently in middle or high school as well as recent graduates. They're looking to learn about students' educational hopes and frustrations. In addition to being involved with a visionary company and learning about startups, I imagine this will be a great learning experience getting to influence the development of a new model of education. If you know any students who would be interested, please get in touch with Prisma here https://survey.survicate.com/e88bea2af49a6079/.
