Zachary Stein is working to bring a greater sense of sanity and justice to education.

He studied philosophy and religion at Hampshire College, and then educational neuroscience, human development, and the philosophy of education at Harvard University. While a student at Harvard, he co-founded what would become Lectica, Inc., a non-profit dedicated to the research-based, justice-oriented reform of large-scale standardized testing in K-12, higher-education, and business.

He has published two books. Social Justice and Educational Measurement was based on his dissertation and traces the history of standardized testing and its ethical implications. His second book, Education in a Time Between Worlds, expands the philosophical work to include grappling with the relations between schooling and technology more broadly. He also writes for peer-reviewed academic journals across a range of topics including the philosophy of learning, educational technology, and integral theory. His work has appeared in a variety of journals including, American Psychologist, New Ideas in Psychology, Mind, Brain, and Education, Integral Review, and the Journal of Philosophy of Education. These days: He is a scholar at the Ronin Institute, where he researches the relations between education, human development, and the evolution of civilizations. He serves as Co-President and  Academic Director of the activist think-tank at the Center for Integral Wisdom, where I write and teach at the edges of integral meta-theory. He acts on the scientific advisor board of the Neurohacker Collective and other technology start-ups, where he uses his expertise in ethics and human development to help guide innovation. He offers human development and learning science consultations to schools, organizations, and educational technology companies.
