For every nine new start-ups founded in K-12 education, only one targets early childhood. Moreover, the best ideas most often come from the people closest to the problems they are trying to solve. We need more innovation in education and in early childhood in particular, and especially more innovation from new places. 4.0 Schools is building that community of innovators in education across the country--and making it possible for many people to test breakthrough ideas.
Genius is evenly distributed. Access to opportunity is not. 4.0 moves resources closer to local communities to affirm their visions of the future of school. We believe that, for every child to reach their full potential, we must invest in diverse leaders who have the lived experience to understand the needs of their community and the technical expertise to design relevant solutions.
