The Institute’s Education Practice’s mission is to apply HBS Professor Clayton Christensen’s theories of disruptive innovation to develop and promote solutions to the problems of education. The primary focus currently is the U.S. K-12 public education system, although the Practice also works on the problems confronting higher education and education outside the U.S.

Christensen’s, Curtis W. Johnson’s, and Michael Horn’s book, Disrupting Class: How Disruptive Innovation Will Change the Way the World Learns, which will be published by McGraw-Hill in May of 2008, is the intellectual basis for the Education Practice.
