        TED Talks Education: Our Failing Schools: Enough is Enough!

        Why does our education system look so similar to the way it did 50 years ago? Millions of students are failing and it’s because we’re clinging to a business model that clearly doesn’t work. Education advocate Geoffrey Canada dares the system to look at the data, think about the customers, and make systematic shifts in order to help greater numbers of kids excel. Geoffrey Canada has spent decades as head of the Harlem Children’s Zone, which supports kids from birth through college in order to break the cycle of poverty.
