We set out to figure out why.

Step 1: Incendiary manifesto.


we developed and posted a manifesto online, espousing the radical idea that schools should not be about human capital.


Step 2: Outraged comments.


We allowed people to make comments for just one week, during which time the manifesto made its way around the world.


Step 3: Thoughtful analysis.


We deconstructed the various comments to discover what is holding up reform and to find a new way forward.
