REDU, is a new Bing-powered website focusing on education, will help parents, teachers, students and education advocates learn more about the state of education, have conversations about education and take action to bring about change.
The new site provides links to current events and issues, a forum for discussion, and ways for people to take action as the US tries to remodel its approach to education, says Cameron Evans of Microsoft. Among its features is a Bing Map that shows available job openings in the education field, along with articles and links to adopt-a-school opportunities.
"People expect that to create a national conversation on public education," Pamela Passman said. "This'll be a huge asset for people to be part of that conversation."
One of the tricky things when it comes to improving education, Passman said, is that it isn't just a question of throwing more money at the problem. "There's a lot of money spent on U.S. education," she said. "We need to make sure people are held accountable."
