Episode Description

Kathryn interviews award-winning educator Kim Bearden, author of “Crash Course: The Life Lessons My Students Taught Me”. Bearden co-founded the Ron Clark Academy (RCA), an internationally-acclaimed middle school and educator training facility in Southeast Atlanta, which Oprah has called "The Best School in America." In "Crash Course" Bearden shares the tools she uses to connect with students in a way that motivates and inspires as she reflects on key moments in her personal and professional life. Kathryn also interviews retired Colonel Dr. Les Stein, author of “Education Disrupted: Strategies for Saving Our Failing Schools”. Failing schools have become the latest academic cottage industry, and they serve as lightning rods for the controversy that continues to surround the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. Dr. Stein's new book is a hands-on practical guide for instructional and institutional leaders on how to make a "real" difference in the success of our nation's schools.
