Introduction The challenge of education is to educate students for the future, a future that holds many unknowns. As teachers we need to shift focus from the daily power struggles within our schools to the larger picture: how we educate students will determine our nation’s path. Teachers are on the front lines; it is up to us to make the discussion student-centric, pushing for curricula and assessments aligned with authentic useful learning. Teaching for the Unknown was established to introduce ideas for reflective thought on education. Short bio: Christine Morano Magee MFA Theatre, University of Virginia; a MA.
