Forbes' 30 Under 30 in Education Focuses on Code, College Readiness, Community Impact

This week, Forbes released its 2015 list of '30 under 30' in the education sector. The list includes high achievers working in familiar places (TFA, TNTP, Khan Academy, etc.), but also includes a number of leaders launching their own start-ups or non-profits. This year's winners seem to coalesce around the areas of code, college readiness, and community impact with individuals like Michael Carter who created Strive for College's virtual mentorship program or Abigail Seldin, VP at ECMC, a website described as "Kayak for college financial aid" that aggregates college net price calculators.  The full list can be viewed here
