PEPG events are intended to create an open academic environment in which top scholars can present and discuss the best current thinking on education policy and governance. Towards this end, the program has hosted numerous conferences and seminars since its founding in 1996. And in 2003, we initiated the Education Policy Colloquium Series with the expressed purpose of providing the Harvard community with greater access to cutting-edge education research.

Charting New Terrain: A Conference on Emerging School Models

Logo for Charting New Terrain conferenceSeptember 22-23, 2022

New approaches to education are rapidly emerging across the United States. Tech leaders are introducing instructional technologies that extend access to personalized content and allow students to pursue their own educational pathways. Educational entrepreneurs are also forming microschools, learning pods, and hybrid homeschools that seek to meet distinct student interests. At the same time, career and technical programs are transforming themselves to foster opportunities for workforce development and experiential learning.  

From September 22–23, the Program on Education Policy and Governance at Harvard ​University’s Kennedy School of Government hosted a conference on these developments with the nation’s leading innovators in the field of emerging school models.
