Salman Khan’s audacious mission to offer online education to anyone, anywhere for free. When you hear Salman Khan’s story, it sounds like an Internet-age fairy tale.

The Khan Academy combines video tutorials with exercises and problems tailored to an individual student’s performance level. But does it work? Khan sat down recently with Slate’s Jacob Weisberg to talk about his new book and the results his nonprofit is producing.
