#44: Personalizing the Educational System
November 16, 2021
In this episode, we interview Dan Durbin who is the Head of school for Beaufort Academy in Beaufort, South Carolina and is a 30-year veteran of education. Dan is an educator ahead of the game - who is not afraid to challenge the overly standardized educational system to address the real issues towards creating personalized educational pathways.
During this podcast interview, we will talk about the importance of redefining and personalizing educational systems for student to experience equality, diversity and inclusion and why the educators must evolve away from old outdated standards that suppress the student’s individuality.
In fact, this theme was widely discussed during our 2021 Virtual Summit, where we asked students, patients, and employees to explore the ways we can unleash individuality by interrupting our assumptions about WHO belongs WHERE, doing WHAT, and HOW.
