Grawemeyer Award Recipient Presentation in Education, Sarah Fine & Jal Mehta

Sarah Fine, who prepares teachers at High Tech High Graduate School of Education linked with a network of diverse charter schools in San Diego and Jal Mehta, a professor at Harvard Univeristy Graduate School of Education are the recipients of the 2021 Grawemeyer Award in Education. Fine and Mehta researched over 30 U.S. high schools for the ideas set forth in their book, "In Search of Deeper Learning: The Quest to Remake the American High School." They argue, "Powerful learning occurs when learners are trying to do something consequential and when they see purpose in what they're doing. The core problem is that the way American society organizes schooling doesn't align very well with what we know about learning."
