Arnett, Thomas – Clayton Christensen Institute for Disruptive Innovation, 2021
Practically overnight, the spread of COVID-19 caused a sudden shutdown of classroom-based instruction--the centuries-old emblem of formal education.

Fisher, Julia Freeland; Price, Richard – Clayton Christensen Institute for Disruptive Innovation, 2021
Alumni networks are part of the bill of goods that colleges and universities sell to students.

Waite, Chelsea; Arnett, Thomas – Clayton Christensen Institute for Disruptive Innovation, 2020
Two pandemics--COVID-19 and systemic racism--are confronting American society, and by extension K-12 schools.

It's more clear than ever that a return to "normal" won't serve…
