Tom Rielly: Introducing the TEDActive Projects: Education

  • A strong teacher can, however, close the achievement gap for students by, perhaps a third, even in a single year.
  • What actually accounts for success in our most challenging contexts is great people and leadership.
  • Success is happening where we have leaders who are obsessed with the potential of their kids, build a strong vision of what their realm will look like when that potential is fulfilled, construct and rally a great team of people around that vision, do all the hard work of creating a welcoming culture of achievement, treat fundamental principles of people-management and support very seriously, and push beyond conventional limitations in time and resources to do whatever it takes to get to their vision. It’s hard, hard work.

    I am so excited about TED ED!
