Whenever we talk about education, we seem to be discussing what isn’t working — but in this interview, we’re going to flip the script and discuss what is working, and how replicable it might be.

The guest is David Banks; he’s the President and CEO of the Eagle Academy Foundation, and he’s been within the Eagle Academy model since it launched (he was a founding principal). The Eagle Academy for Young Men has emerged as one of the most high-demand models in New York City. Dylan Ratigan, a former MSNBC host, has called their approach “a greedy bastard antidote.”

We conducted a similar interview as to this one back in the early days of the podcast, so check that out too.

Here’s a video interview with Banks, for more context:

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.
