I have always had a soft spot for organizations that take a “disruptive” approach towards making the world a better place.
These organizations are “disruptive” because they take the status-quo and say “yes this may be the case now but what if?”
I came across the Right Question Institute and as I read through their mission I was impressed with the ability for an organization to look at an established system the school system and ask what if: “students asked questions in class, and teachers helped students become critical thinkers through questions and answers not based on some testing model.

The Right Question Institute (RQI) has a two-fold mission:
- To develop and disseminate innovative methods that all people – no matter their literacy or educational level – can use to advocate for themselves and participate more effectively in decision-making processes that affect them.
- To promote the idea of Microdemocracy as a new starting point for democratic action.
It may spark some questions of your own and if it does add them to your list of organizations to watch.
