Transforming Education - Inspiring Keynotes from Washington Speakers Bureau's Educational Speakers

Educational Speakers: Transforming Education Around the World

Every 26 seconds, a student in the United States drops out of high school. Nearly 1 in 5 Americans reads below the level they need to earn a living wage. While women make up more than half of college graduates, they comprise less than 15% of engineers in the workforce. As a new school year begins for so many, several WSB educational speakers remain focused on solving these issues. They believe that their work is not only the right thing to do, it is the smart thing to do in order to remain competitive in the global economy. Take a look at how their extraordinary work is transforming education—and the lives of students around the world.

Motivate Your Audience with Sir Ken Robinson

Worldwide efforts are underway to reform education systems to meet the challenges of the 21st century.

Sir Ken explains the links between education and creativity, between innovation and financial success.
