A venture capitalist searches for the purpose of school. Here’s what he found.

Ted Dintersmith is a highly successful venture capitalist and father of two who is devoting most of his time, energy and part of of his personal fortune to education-related initiatives that call for a radical remaking of what and how students learn. He organized, funded and produced the documentary “Most Likely To Succeed,” which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2015. He, along with co-author Tony Wagner, recently released a book titled “Most Likely To Succeed: Preparing Our Kids for the Innovation Era.” And he is conducting a 50-state tour to encourage communities all over the country to re-think the purpose of school.
