Commonwealth Club of California Podcast with Vicki Abeles and Jo Boaler

Race to Nowhere’s Vicki Abeles recently joined Jo Boaler, Stanford professor of mathematics education, at the Commonwealth Club of California for a discussion on what’s working, what’s not, and what’s next for the American public school system. 

The program highlighted the detrimental effects our achievement culture has on today’s youth and it stressed the importance of community mobilization in implementing effective, evidence-based methods of teaching our children. Vicki also debunked widely accepted education myths, answered audience questions and showed clips of Reel Link Films’ upcoming feature film--  a movie that profiles innovative schools, educators and advocates who have broken the mold and embraced alternative methods of teaching and learning.
