A particularly good book for educators including those involved with curriculum and the strategic planning of schools, and I would also like my own children to read it. It’s a good example of what a successful life in 2020 looks like—today’s world is rarely picking one profession and sticking with it for life.

Pivot has many practical uses for parents and educators with thoughtful insights on how to champion student success.

As an educational leader, Pivot was very helpful as we build a system addressing the whole child with a focus on equity and cultural competence. As a parent, it encouraged me to foster curiosity and independence in my three daughters. As a fan of human achievement, Ravi’s story is fascinating at the least and inspiring at its best.

PIVOT: Empowering Students Today to Succeed in an Unpredictable Tomorrow

Education is more than just going to school

How can educators empower students to stay relevant in an ever-changing world? As globalization and artificial intelligence dramatically change the future of work, preparing students for a life defined more by who they are than by what they do is the most important benchmark of a modern education.

Pivot is an inspiring journey of self-discovery that reveals an insightful framework for creating self-directed, lifelong learners who can … pivot.

Born into one of the world’s most politically influential families, Ravi Hutheesing rejected the obvious choices presented to him, and instead, took ownership of his education. He propelled himself to the stage at Madison Square Garden as the guitarist of a world-famous band, to the skies as aviation’s go-to spokesperson for recruiting student pilots, to the complex geopolitical landscapes of Iraq and Russia as a cultural diplomat for the US Department of State, and now to schools and conferences worldwide as a dynamic keynote speaker leading discussions on reimagining education.

Ravi uncovers many ways that traditional schooling, real-world experiences, mentorships, and the arts will equip students with the skills they need to thrive in an unpredictable future. With actionable takeaways at the end of every chapter, Pivot reveals how school administrators, teachers, counselors, parents, and students can maximize their roles … because educating the “whole child” is about much more than just going to school.
