"An educational system isn't worth a great deal if it teaches young people how to make a living, but doesn't teach them how to make a life."

I deeply believe in the need for and value of life skills education in the classroom. Learning how to set boundaries, manage difficult emotions, be present, form good habits- these are arguably as important as math and history, and possibly even more so. In an effort to further this idea and move it into the realm of reality, I agreed to participate in an interview series with Laura Durance, founder of The Up Inc, a nonprofit organization committed to changing education in this way.
The series is not just for students, however. It's for all of us!
