He is the author of The Habit of Thought: From Socratic Seminars to Socratic Practice, and the founder of innovative Socratic, Montessori, and Paideia schools and programs in Alaska, Florida, California, Texas, and New Mexico. Moreno Valley High School, the charter school for which Michael was the founding principal, was ranked the 36th best public high school in the U.S. on the Washington Post's 2006 Challenge Index. He is a pioneer in innovative education models. His methods have been successful in developing underprivileged students as complex, thinking human beings and demonstrating the profound potential for human flourishing through innovation in educational practices. He currently serves on the board of Consious Capitalism, Inc., and his most recent book is Be the Solution: How Entrepreneurs and Conscious Capitalists Can Solve All the Worlds Problems. Michael and I will get to talk about not just the core issues in education, but also about his perspective on entrepreneurship--both as a student activity and as a means of addressing educational goals
