How to Create a More Innovative U.S. Education System - Yoav Gonen

Yoav Gonen returns to Capture Your Flag to build upon his 2009 interview with a 2010 conversation with host Erik Michielsen. In Chapter 17 of 17, Gonen, a New York Post education reporter, talks about consensus building challenges in education causing innovation shortfalls. Education initiatives often fail to ask "why did it succeed or fail?" Recent developments highlight a more scientific study and rigorous analysis within education innovation, but, as Gonen notes, the movement is only beginning. Before starting his New York City newspaper reporting career, Gonen earned his BA in English from the University of Michigan and his Masters in Journalism from New York University.
