Video: Dr. Jack Shonkoff on “Education Nation”

The Frameworks Institute recently posted a blog entry about Dr. Jack Shonkoff's appearance at an NBC News forum designed to engage the country in a solutions-focused conversation about the state of education in America called “Education Nation.”

The Institute said: "Among the examples of good communicators at Education Nation was Jack Shonkoff, M.D., and Director of the Center on the Developing Child at Harvard University. In his presentation, Dr. Shonkoff expertly lays out the core story of how early brain development happens and how that development is the foundation for effective learning. He goes on to talk about how healthy development can be derailed, and once derailed, how it can be put back on track. Note his use of values and metaphors to overcome the significant problems Americans have in imagining development. Needless to say, FrameWorks has been paying close attention. In more than two years of research in the field, on how Americans think about education, we’ve seen the good, the bad, and the ugly of talking about learning, teaching, and how the education system might be reformed."
