"Greenfield Schooling": How Policymakers Can Cultivate a Garden of Educational Innovation. Education Outlook. No. 3
Hess, Frederick M.
American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research
Reform-minded educators often run into obstacles when they try to bring their innovative ideas to schools modeled on twentieth-century factories. The challenge of "greenfield schooling," as I write in my new book, "Education Unbound: The Promise and Practice of Greenfield Schooling," is to cultivate environments that invite entrepreneurial ideas and to provide an infrastructure that allows those ideas to succeed on a wide scale. (Contains 2 endnotes.)
