For many adults, the formal education system leaves way too many gaps in its curriculum for it to be granted complete control when educating kids.

This means everything from language sensitivity-training sites to zombie survival colleges.

Back at formal schooling environments, education trends skewed more toward building a sense of community and encouraging inclusive play.

The education industry is growing as quickly as its students do. Keep up with the trends by checking out our Education Trend Report.
