In 2022, national average test scores in reading and math both declined to the lowest levels in decades. While most of the commentary instills concern, even fear, over the current state of education, innovative educators are changing the narrative. The pandemic, they say, is actually a rare opportunity for schools to reform. How can schools be reinvented to get students excited about learning? What is innovative teaching and what are some examples of innovative teaching models? What do students want out of schools? And how do they want to be supported in their education?

In this episode, Kevin discusses innovative teaching with the superintendent of Eminence Independent School District, Dr. Buddy Berry.
