Talk: The One World Schoolhouse: Education Reimagined

Salman Khan, founder of the Khan Academy, joins Eric Schmidt for a fireside chat about his new book, The One World Schoolhouse: Education Reimagined. "A free, world-class education for anyone, anywhere: this is the goal of the Khan Academy, a passion project that grew from an ex-engineer and hedge funder's online tutoring sessions with his niece, who was struggling with algebra, into a worldwide phenomenon. Today millions of students, parents, and teachers use the Khan Academy's free videos and software, which have expanded to encompass nearly every conceivable subject; and Academy techniques are being employed with exciting results in a growing number of classrooms around the globe."
