TED Talk: Let’s teach for mastery — not test scores

TED TALKSWould you choose to build a house on top of an unfinished foundation? Of course not. Why,then, do we rush students through education when they haven’t always grasped the basics? Yes, it’s complicated, but educator Sal Khan shares his plan to turn struggling students into scholars by helping them master concepts at their own pace.

Editor’s note: This talk comes from the PBS special “TED Talks: Education Revolution” which premieres Tuesday, September 13.
