Special Summer Episode with the Charlotte Lab School
Show Notes

This is a special SUMMER edition podcast of Season 2 of our A Revolution in Education podcast, a collaboration between Jim McCue and two students at the Charlotte Lab School, Albert (Tré) Kirton III and his friend Branson Flynn, joined by Charlotte Lab leaders Mary Moss, Ricky Singh, and Vikki-Rose Tunick, and fellow students John Harmon and Kylie Southivongnorath.  Mary, Vikki-Rose, and Ricky share how the Lab School started (and why they started it) and the students share their first impressions of the school and the impact it has had on them.  Everyone speaks to “the Lab Way,” focusing on relationships, WHO each student is, diversity by design, rigor and innovation, learning in the real world, and self-discovery through their advisory.  What we appreciate about this episode is that Tré and Branson embraced the opportunity to co-produce the podcast, co-designing the format, making the arrangements, hosting the conversation, and even editing the final product.  As we say, we believe in giving youth the opportunity to learn through meaningful, authentic experiences.  And here again is yet one more example of what is possible when you do.  Enjoy!
