Knowledge Matters School Tour

 

Schools that deliberately focus on imparting knowledge of the world by restoring wonder and excitement in the classroom are often called knowledge-rich. The Knowledge Matters School Tour – whose mantra is to “find the good and praise it” – lifts up the stories of schools that use the power of knowledge-rich schooling to promote excellence, provide equity, and inspire passion. We are particularly interested in drawing attention to schools that are succeeding in closing the gap between students who grow up in poverty and their more privileged peers, as they are the ones most impacted by a knowledge-lite education.
