Short Documentary Released: John Danner and Rocketship Education

Rocketship Education is a national network of charter schools whose mission is to transform elementary education through sustainable, high-performing, scalable schools in high need areas.

John Danner got involved in education following the sale of his business, when he became a Henry Crown Fellow of the Aspen Global Leadership Network. His venture, Rocketship Education is pioneering a unique hybrid education model that supplements teacher instruction with adaptive technology to address individual student needs. This enables classes to progress faster and reduces the burden on overworked teachers, aiming to eliminate the learning gap between low-income and high-income students.
