During the interview, Jones discussed the company’s business model and its vision of leveraging proven best practices to transform public school students from passive listeners into active learners.
“We’re a company that’s dedicated to transforming public education. We have this vision of unleashing America’s greatest natural resource – the minds of our children,” Jones said. “A teachable moment occurs when the student wants to learn what the teacher wants to teach. Good teachers can recognize those and take advantage of them; great teachers can create them. What we try to do is put a situation in place that all teachers can become great teachers. We’re focused on kids becoming good learners more than on the content that they learn.”
