Reinvent Education, an Interview with Mike Yates

Released Tuesday, 2nd February 2021
Good episode? Give it some love!
In this episode of The Wired Educator Podcast, I interview Mike Yates. Mike is without a doubt one of the most innovative Educators I believe I have ever interviewed. He has an unbelievably unique perspective on education that you absolutely need to hear. This is not a typical wired educator podcast. Mike and I have an incredible authentic discussion on the challenges and opportunities for education. We talk about what it really takes to create change, and we have an awesome conversation on race and equity in education as well.
I’m so happy you chose this episode of The Wired Educator Podcast. Buckle up. Lean in. It's time to level up
I love this interview!
Mike Yates is working to reinvent the school system. Every single day. THAT is what gets him up in the morning.
He is the Senior Managing Director of Network Strategies of the TFA Reinvention Lab. He's looking to find, connect, and add value to people doing the real work of school reinvention at the intersection of equity and innovation.
When he's not working in the lab he coaches public speakers, advises education startups, and hosts a podcast called Schoolish.
