Zuckerberg taps Shelton to run education effort

James Shelton talks with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and wife Priscilla Chan, about his new position to oversee the education efforts of the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative. Shelton will focus on the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative's two educational priorities: personalized learning technology, which allows K-12 students learn in their own way and at their own pace, and reaching underserved communities to remove "barriers to success for the most vulnerable kids" such as poverty and illness.
