Today on An Imperfect Map I talk with Micaela Bracamonte, the founder and head of the Lang School in New York City. She founded the school because she couldn’t find the right school for her own young child years ago. That’s amazing enough, but she didn’t have a career in education at that time! We talk about her vision, and I learn a lot about what grit and ingenuity can look like for a school leader. She sees this time and disruption as an opportunity to learn and improve the fundamentals of the educational experience rather than just a time to “get through” the crisis. It’s inspiring stuff.
