Gov. Doug Burgum is creating a task force on Innovation in Education.
Burgum said the current educational system – which has been in place for generations – is at a crossroads.
"The traditional model, which was a 'one-to-many,' classroom-focused, book-centric approach is not really reflective of the tools we have available in the 21st century," Burgum told reporters. "That's not the most effective approach."
Burgum said the task force will look at ways schools can turn out students who are problem solvers. He said it will consist of 11 to 15 members.
