How Innovative Learning Models
Can Transform K-12 Education
Download the ReportDownload Executive Summary
For more than 100 years, the basic structure of schooling has centered on 'the box' – one teacher guiding a class of same-aged students through an annual, standardized curriculum – often with the aid of a textbook.

Educators have worked tirelessly within this basic paradigm to unlock the potential of our nation's youth.
Key reforms over the last two decades have helped to expand access and drive improvement for millions of students.

But now, as schools face severe staffing shortages, mandates for learning acceleration, and a rapidly-changing world that poses new demands and opportunities for students to navigate, the inherent limitations of the box itself are becoming patently clear. 
New technologies and new advances in the science of learning make it more possible than ever to fundamentally reimagine schooling in ways that move beyond these limits. 

But the burden of designing these new approaches cannot fall solely on the backs of today's educators – they already have too much on their plate.
That's why modernizing K-12  education requires the development and integration of innovative learning models, robust programs schools can adopt that allow them to move beyond the limits of the box itself.
Innovative learning models are designed by model providers, organizations that bring together experts in instruction, operations, pedagogy, and technology to fundamentally redesign the student and teacher experience, often in partnership with pilot schools. 

Once the models they design are tested and ready for broader adoption, model providers then tailor their models to local needs, provide ongoing implementation support, and share in the responsibility for student outcomes.
Accelerating the adoption of innovative learning models will require:
Investment in research and development so more models can be created,
Initiative within local school communities to explore model adoption, and
State and federal education policies that create the space for innovative learning models to emerge. 
Out of the Box provides a roadmap for school communities, advocates, philanthropists, federal and state policymakers, and others who are ready to move beyond the box and chart a new course for what schooling can be.
