Schools are seldomly considered as agents of innovation. However, this view can easily be discredited once one realizes the schools' potential to absorb innovation and magnify its effects. But teachers and schools cannot do it alone. To that end, better networking and partnerships between schools, regional industries and local communities should be implemented as well as taking advantage of technological progress. As a result, these measures should culminate in the establishment of better educational resources and methodologies, a more inclusive and equitable learning experience as well as enhanced human capital tailored to a given environment.
