Design Education in Schools is key design policy initiative

The Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum and the National Design Policy Initiative are teaming up to make design education in schools one of their top priorities in American Design Policy.

Caroline Payson, (left) education director for the Cooper-Hewitt, lead the first of three round table discussions for the National Design Policy Initiative at the IDEAS Forum held in Washington, D.C. on April 13, 2010 on the role of design education in schools for the 21st century. Participants then worked in teams to develop strategies and recommendations for raising public awareness about design education and providing the infrastructure necessary to insure that every student in K-12 schools understands design and design thinking.
