Innovations in Education

Innovations in Education is a video and blog series with Carrie Walton Penner that explores first-hand groundbreaking work taking place across the country in K-12 education.
Working to answer some of the biggest questions in K-12 education
The Walton Family Foundation’s involvement in efforts to improve K-12 education spans nearly three decades. We’ve learned a lot in that time – most notably that we don’t have all the answers. So, we look to brave leaders, including the individuals featured in this series, to find solutions that improve education for all students. Through Innovations in Education, a video series that explores work taking place across the country, we will introduce you to some of these leaders. Join us on this journey and, together, we can learn about these exciting innovations and how to make a positive difference in the lives of all children.
