Hoover’s Koret Task Force on K–12 Education is embarking on a project that looks at the future of American education. At a dinner, which was part of the task force’s semiannual meeting, task force members gave us a glimpse at what their expectations are and what might be done to address problems on the horizon. Topics include technology, family structure, school organization, district organization, political implications, standards, performance, teachers, finance, privatization, and school choice. The final report will be published in 2010.
