This week, REINVENTING SCHOOL changes its perspective. Our guests are not professional educators. Instead, this is a moderated discussion among students about what school is, and what it could be. Given the uncertainty of the next school year and the potential for new solutions, we're very excited about this episode.
Special thanks to our student guests, and to our one adult guest:
Dr. Podguriski founded The Washington Health System Teen Outreach in 1988 and a peer education program in 1995. Through the Teen Outreach Program, Dr. Podgurski mentors young parents and trains peer educators. She has trained over 15,000 peer educators and over 10,000 young parents.
In honor of her noteworthy accomplishments, Dr. Podgurski was awarded the Athena Women of Wisdom Award (2004), the NAACP Human Rights Award (2008), The ARC Community Award (2014), the Healthy Teen Network Excellence in Sexuality Education Award (2014), and the Carol Mendez Cassell Award for Excellence in Sexuality Education (2014).
