Why Can’t Sal Khan Just Teach Everyone?: Episode 3 of Class Disrupted

Parents everywhere are staring down summer and thinking ahead to whether schools will open next year, and what it might look like if they do. The bottom line is that there’s a lot we don’t know. But we do know it will look very different. While that’s scary, there’s also great opportunity in this moment.

Resources like Khan Academy are valued more than ever, and yet they are not in themselves enough. In this episode of Class Disrupted, we talk with Sal Khan about why Khan Academy can’t — and shouldn’t — teach everyone everything. We discuss why the classroom element is so important and why — as we look toward next year — we can seize on new ways of learning that aren’t constrained by the frameworks of the past.
