Podcasts – Shift your paradigm

Ken Danford is Executive Director at North Star.He grew up in Shaker Heights, Ohio and attended public schools. His positive experiences as a student led him to become an idealistic public school teacher, first in Prince George’s County, MD, and then in Amherst, MA. Having earned his teaching degree at Brown University under the auspices of the Coalition of Essential Schools, he planned a career in education reform from inside public schools. He became disillusioned with what he felt was too tight of a system, and decided to leave teaching school in a way that would support any interested students to leave with him. Nolan Saito, 15 years old, is a member of North Star. The learners at North Star are individuals moving forward in unique directions at a pace right for them.

I was one of those kids who spent a lot of time holed up alone in my bedroom and listened to the radio for company. But not the crazy morning zoo or Casey Kasem’s weekly Top 40.
