Bold Idea 

Engage and empower America’s youth in a national movement for quality education.


Our Education is the voice of young people across the country who believe that all American children should have access to high quality education. It was created as a response to the sad reality that the most critical stakeholders in education—students themselves—do not have a voice in school reform efforts.


Ethan Hutt is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Teaching and Learning, Policy and Leadership at the University of Maryland. Ethan’s research focuses on the historical relationship between schools, the law, and education policy. In particular, his research examines the way in which the law has defined the purpose, organization, and success of public education in America through the creation of standards and the use of quantification. He is currently working on a book manuscript based on his dissertation entitled Certain Standards: How Efforts to Establish and Enforce Minimum Educational Standards Transformed American Schooling (1870-1980), places the current standards-based accountability movement in historical perspective by understanding it as the latest in a century-long effort to define the appropriate outcomes of public education. In addition to his dissertation work, Ethan has published articles on the legal implications of Value-Added Models for administrators and teachers and on accountability in a global context.
