Ken Kay is the Chief Executive Officer of EdLeader21, a professional learning community for education leaders committed to 21st century education.
Ken co-founded the Partnership for 21st Century Skills in 2002 and served as its President for eight years. Prior to his work on 21st century education, Ken served as executive director of the CEO Forum on Education and Technology. He co-authored The Leader’s Guide to 21st Century Education: 7 Steps for Schools and Districts, released in 2012, and the foreword to the book, 21st Century Skills: Rethinking How Students Learn. Currently, he serves on the board of the Buck Institute for Education (www.bie.org).
Beginning in February, Ken will work with a cross-sectional team of WPS students, educators, parents, and community members to build a WPS 21st Century Profile of a Graduate (POG). A POG includes a finite list of competencies that Wellesley deems most important for our Wellesley High School graduates to master as they prepare for college, career, and life in the 21st century.
