Rebecca Winthrop

In the sixth of NCEE’s series of conversations on critical topics in education and innovation, Anthony Mackay sits down with Rebecca Winthrop, senior fellow and director of the Center for Universal Education at the Brookings Institution. In her recent book, Leapfrogging Inequality, Winthrop and her co-researchers chart a new path for global education by examining the possibility of leapfrogging—harnessing innovation to rapidly accelerate educational progress—to ensure that all young people develop the skills they need for a fast-changing world.
