Ostrolenk, and co-host Deidre Hackleman, speak with Matt Beaudreau on post-conventional education. Beaudreau chronicles his own journey working as an educator in conventional education systems, and his observations of how standardized education leads to simplicity of throught. Conversely, in the post-conventional educational systems in which Beaudreau teaches, children learn personal goal-setting, discussion skills, and how to impact their communities, in addition to basic skills. Ultimately, children learn autonomy and self-awareness that not only prepares them for college, but for a successful life.
