"In the past I thought I would change the world and even possibly open a charter school but education is a machine that refuses to accept major deviations from the ancient standards. I come from a family of educators but I can’t do it anymore. Thank you for the podcast, because it reinforces that I’m not crazy and alone thinking this way about education."
