Episode No. 20: Yasmin Bhatia, CEO of Uplift Education


Here, we interview Yasmin Bhatia, the CEO of Uplift Education, a charter school network based in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

We talk about Bhatia’s past with McKinsey and Company, and how that type of work compares with running a charter network — then about the argument that charter schools are nothing more than an effort to de-fund public education. In the middle, we also discuss how you build a school network for the future (i.e. new campuses) while also maintaining a focus on the present (i.e. student achievement).

It’s an interesting talk, and I think you’d enjoy it even if you’re not linked to the world of education.

What’s This All About?

This is a blog and podcast series about the work we all do: the highs, the lows, the effectiveness, the intrigue, the models, the double speak, and the passion. The point is to have discussions with people in those fields about their life and experiences. And hey, sometimes the stories might be funny, too. In the spring of 2013, the new posts started to fade, but you can find them all on iTunes.
