Educator and author Zachary Wright experienced a pivotal moment as a teacher that opened his eyes to the injustices inherent in our education system. In this podcast episode, Wright speaks candidly about that experience and how it motivated him to self-reflect, deepen his knowledge of educational inequity, and become a fierce proponent of hyperlocal activism.
