46. Accelerating Innovation, with Sujata Bhatt and Anirban Bhattacharyya

Change is daunting. Change to entrenched systems and institutions can feel impossible. Even thinking about where to begin can be exhausting. For schools that are interested in remaining healthy and relevant in the 21st-century, Transcend brings resources, experience, energy, optimism, and support to the design process. We are joined today by Sujata Bhatt and Anirban Bhattacharyya from Transcend - a national nonprofit dedicated to accelerating innovation in the core design of “school.” They have a vision for creating extraordinary, equitable learning environments. 

Listen as our guests unpack the design process and share their belief that schools interested in innovative change are not alone, and are in fact, a part of a revolutionary movement that is accelerating in education.


12:00 “Another advantage of a holistic blueprint is that not only are the pieces sometimes going in different directions and suffer from each other, they’re often not even in the same place, and so you can’t even go and learn (from each other), and so, a lot of times, there are messy sub-systems where you can see that, manage that, and create a plan to get them in sync.” Sujata
