What can you do about it?

As teachers we must create producers, not just passive consumers. We must foster students who are passionate about the things they study, understand why they are important and how they are preparing for the rest of their lives. Students who are itching to try new things and expand their horizons instead of fearful of a failing grade. Students who are inspired by and learn from their peers, and who are actively building their tomorrow. 

This is Innovation. At StartEdUp, we have made it our mission to give all educators the resources necessary to become this type of teacher and to truly make a difference in the lives of countless students.

In classrooms across the nation, innovative teachers are employing passion-based, open-source learning to improve their student’s education. Let's take the next steps!
