Far too many students graduate from high school still unprepared for the lives they want to lead. They enroll in college and land in remedial courses, or start jobs and discover they’re missing skills they need. Is this a secondary school problem? No. It starts from the very beginning. We need to understand why. We will unpack "The Opportunity Myth" and understand what students can show us about how school is letting them down—and what we can do to fix it.
