The Yidan Prize Foundation, a global philanthropic educational foundation focused on inspiring and supporting innovative education ideas and practices, has announced the formation of a Council of Luminaries. It has named I-LABS co-Director Patricia Kuhl as one of 16 of the world’s leading lights in education research and practice. The Council of Luminaries gathers the world’s brightest minds – researchers, educators, neuroscientists, psychologists, economists, statisticians and innovators. The luminaries are determined to take concrete actions to close the inequality gap in education around the world. They aspire to build new bridges between the worlds of research and practice to make education more responsive to the challenges of the 21st century, and more inclusive for the millions of children who are marginalized by today’s systems.
