Episode 44: Equitable Education and Infinite Potential for ALL w/ Beau McCoy
Today’s educational system is “one-size-fits-all” and operates under a false assumption that we all learn the same way.
- How do you put a classroom of kids in one place and expect them to all learn the same material the same way?
- Why are we not taking advantage of the best that technology has to offer?
- How do you effectively reach each child and inspire them to try new things and discover their passion?
- Why are teachers paying out of pocket for school supplies?
These are the same questions that Beau McCoy has asked a thousand times over as he’s traveled the world and been involved with communities in every corner of the globe.
