PODCAST TOUR: Dr. Brent Goldman, Xceed Founder and CEO
Dr. Brent Goldman, founder and CEO of Xceed, is a former public school educator who as a young teacher quickly recognized that the traditional model of education had become antiquated. He struggled to understand why, for almost 120 years, the same education model has been used with no regard for the fact that it no longer works and didn’t consider how students might want to learn or engage. So, 25 years ago, Dr. Goldman left public education and has since worked tirelessly to find a better way for students to learn.
Over the past six months, Dr. Goldman has had the opportunity to share his passion for education, his views on the future of education and his experience with hybrid learning as a guest on several education and parenting podcasts. Through this podcast tour, he hopes that he can help parents better understand the options around school choice and the importance of giving their students a voice in their education.
Here are a few of those podcasts. Take a listen!
