What Steve Jobs’ Widow Wants to Build to Fix America’s Inadequate Schools


Perhaps because America’s current public schools were never created with the goal of nurturing the future innovator, Steve Jobs‘ widow Laurene Powell Jobs is going to build them herself from scratch.

Today, the philanthropist announced that she has committed $50 million to the XQ: The Super School Project which is working to redefine and reimagine high school education in the U.S.

From now thru November 15 XQ will accept applications and select finalists in April 2016 with a goal to build between 5 to 10 Super Schools over the next five year period.

The purpose of the competition is to create a model of what an effective and innovative high school looks like.

“Teams will first self-assemble; then, immerse themselves in the leading thinking and research on how students learn today; spend time unearthing student needs and the changing demands of the world of work; and do rigorous systems-thinking to build their ideas into the next American high school,” the XQ website states.

Those that win will get money and expert mentor support to turn their idea into a reality.
