Ep. 31: Solutions to Whitewashed Self-Directed Education
Show Notes

In this episode, we come real plain with it. I’m happy to offer up this dialogue where one return guest and one new one are brave enough and human enough to nurture safe space with me. Anthony Galloway was on episode 19. He is one of the founders of Heartwood Agile Learning Center in Clarkston, Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta. He’s a graduate of Morehouse College, a believer in nurturing learning, and a longtime educator/facilitator.
 
Anthony is joined by one of the Heartwood ALC co-founders, Julia Cordero. Julia has been in education for more than 20 years, in private schools, at a public access TV station directing a youth program for teens, And in this episode, she is helping to nurture safe space by offering up some real candor around her own baggage and biases, and talking about her willingness to face them, and to do something about the lack of Black and Brown faces at Heartwood ALC, including on their board and on their staff.  #POCinSDE
