Could there be personal (human) networks of support for students as they research and build knowledge? Could such networks support students with actionable research i.e. civic engagement; meaningful projects; making a difference (problem finders)?

Problem: "They will continue to come from K-12 systems that use old, tired techniques" (provost.gatech.edu).
Solution: What are the entry requirements? If primarily access is based on standardized testing scores, that would need to change. Change admissions process, create ripple effect of change top-bottom.

Perhaps cohorts at FUschools - Baseschools can have an edge in terms of enrollment -- students interest-based project work, reputation, growth (socio-emotional, critical competencies, leadership, subject-specific domain knowledge, and proven willingness to embrace and explore interdisciplinary approaches to problem solving) as a significant point of consideration for the admissions process.

If that is easier said than done, what needs to change in order to make it happen?
