What if we swapped our focus on “education” for a focus on “learning” instead? Whereas “education” is often confined to schools, the notion of “learning” expresses so much more. We could rename and reestablish our Departments of Education as Departments of Learning. We could weave programming across schools, libraries, afterschool programs, playgrounds, and more. We could pair artists and technologists with teachers; we could pair social workers and mental-health counselors with school nurses. We could make learning a practice of curiosity, creativity, and love — one led by learners and supported by whole communities (and even whole countries). It’s a change of just one word, but it’s a big change in mindset.
