Education sets the foundation for how we learn for the rest of our lives, and we went straight to the classroom to study today’s challenges in the education system. We were kindly hosted by Sage Hill School, and we learned about what school administrators are facing from the excellent panel including Gordon McNeill, President of Sage Hill School, Dr. Fred Navarro, Superintendent, Newport Mesa Unified School District and Kathie Nielsen, Chief Academic Officer, Tustin Unified District. Next, we took a tour of the facility at Sage Hill led by very passionate and bright students. STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) is becoming an even more prominent topic in the education system, and there are opportunities for students to dive into these subjects at early ages. We heard from Eureka, Girls Inc and Mind Research and learned about the work they do to make students feel comfortable about the failures and successes of the learning process by working in groups and providing very intentional programs. We gained a new perspective on the social element of school from Erica Sperling, Newport Beach Police Department Crime Prevention Specialist. Cyber bullying is a growing problem, and it was helpful to see the process that follows the report of an incident. There are so many people working hard behind the scenes to create a safe atmosphere for students. We were truly inspired after this workshop filled with passionate speakers and students who are all paving the way for what education will look like in the future.
