“The best thing we can ever do for kids is help them find their
‘why’ in life.” Dr. Ken Wallace, Superintendent of
District 207 in Park Ridge, Illinois explains why and what happens
when schools don’t.
About the Podcast
Innovation catalyst Kirsten Richert, and career and leadership coach Jeff Ikler help leaders and schools think differently about change. They look broadly at change in education and ask:
• Who is leading it?
• What are they trying to accomplish on behalf of their students and why?
• What obstacles are they encountering and overcoming?
They’re intensely interested in who is trying to move education from its current and traditional “normal” toward something that is more meaningful for students facing the 21st (and 22nd!) century.
We hear from practitioners inside schools and from thought leaders outside of schools.
Through these podcast episodes, they will expose listeners to innovative tools and experienced thought-leaders to help them get unstuck and move toward their desired goals.
