The Council on the Future of Education was created due to a need to redesign the concept of education that will fit with our foreseeable future. Public education was originally created by the Committee of Ten.

They used three systems of their time to create what education looks like today: the church, the factory, and the jail.

Society has progressed in the 21st century due to technology and the advancements of science and discovery, but the education system is still stuck in the Industrial Revolution. 

The Council on the Future of Education helps to provide information and a platform to discuss the necessary changes for our modern-day educational system.
