Powderhouse is building something which has never existed before: a vertically integrated1 research, design, and advocacy organization devoted to youth. Most work in this space is about School,2 not about learning. The little which is about learning ignores the wickedly hard problem of grappling with School. So much talk about innovation and revolution, so little courage to tackle radical problems with the patience and rigor they require. If that inspires (rather than deflates or offends), we'd like your help.
