Khan Academy founder shares vision in new book

Just a few years ago, Salman Khan's online education tutorials were only known to a handful of students. Now, his unique brand of video lectures draw more than five million users every month and are used by teachers in more than 15,000 classroms around the world.

In this new book, "The One World School House," Khan lays out his vision for the future of education, writing "the eschool I envision would be a place where mistakes are allowed, tangents are encouraged, and big thinking is celebrated as a process – whatever the outcome might turn out to be."

Khan sits down with the Starting Point team on the show today to discuss his philosophy and to explain the problems he sees in the current system of education.

    It's not about what's wrong with the current education system, but what it could be. Innovative thinking is what we are founded on. I love that Khan is bringing the conversation to education.
