XQ- Super School Project

The Super School Project is a bold new effort to tap America’s collective ingenuity and rethink high school. In a year-long competition, XQ called on America’s students, teachers, administrators, civic leaders, businesses, entrepreneurs, artists, and designers to come together, rise up, and meet the challenge of designing the new American high school. XQ is led by Co-Founder and CEO Russlynn Ali, former Assistant Secretary of Education for Civil Rights under President Barack Obama, and Co-Founder and Board Chair Laurene Powell Jobs, president of Emerson Collective. Board members include Geoffrey Canada, Marc Ecko, Michael Klein, and Yo-Yo Ma.
