Rethink Ed

Education has significantly changed and continues to change. These changes raise issues—both old and new—around access, quality, equity, and dignity in the education space.

Rethink Ed is a space to talk about how we can use an entrepreneurial mindset to address education, from policy and research to ed-tech and the science of learning.  How can you and I contribute? Where do we need to involve larger teams or stakeholders? How do we develop better business models and enable quality learning opportunities for all? What needs to systematically evolve or even be disrupted?

This Uncommon Table series is in honor of Sudeeksha Bhati, whose vision was to improve the quality of and access to learning. A Babson undergraduate, she was a living example of the positive impact education can have on a person and a community. Despite her short presence on this earth, her courageous entrepreneurial leadership became an immense inspiration to us all. Through these conversations, we aim to inspire action that continues Sudeeksha’s legacy: an unwavering pursuit of excellence—and equity—in education for all.
