We Are All Designing the Future of Public Education.

Next Generation Learning Challenges (NGLC) supports the educators who are reimagining public education. NGLC helps them apply what we now know about learning to school design; we help them live next gen learning professionally; and we work with them to generate environments in which next gen learning can flourish.
