About our Guest: Emma Perez
Emma B. Perez has drawn on her experiences as a student, a parent, and a college and career coach working with schools. Her book, “What’s the Point of School?” and her blog at EmmaBPerez.com is a treatise of that experience, her research, and a new vision for education.
“I believe that true education transformation is not just a reworking within our system but a reimagining of the system altogether. It is a culture change. We need to change the way we think, view, and talk about education.”
