The Odyssey Initiative

Our education system is flawed in a major way. It's something we're all aware of, and something we talk about, but so few people are actually taking action to change it. I was so excited when I heard about my college friend Michelle's new project, The Odyssey Initiative.

This September, Michelle and her colleagues will tour the 50 states to visit some of the country's best schools and classrooms. They'll observe, document, and showcase (on their website), the best teaching practices used by the best teachers in America. They're hoping other teachers will use their site and implement some of the country's teacher's best practices into their own work.

In order to make this happen, they're raising funds on their Kickstarter page. They've only got a month left to raise money for this amazing journey. Check it out and support in whatever way you can!
