In this episode, we welcome Ted Dintersmith. Ted is a film producer, author, and speaker on education and innovation.
Ted founded the nonprofit What School Could Be after realizing that there was a gap in standard education needing to be filled. What School Could Be seeks to reimagine what a classroom, a test, and a student all look like.
