Video: A World Interview w/ John Legend on Education
Some great things said here…these were just a few I picked out:
On finding the best schools — Let’s make all of our schools better, let’s make all of our schools accountable. No organization can run if they don’t have the freedom to experiment and do things that might work. It shouldn’t be about charter vs. public (schools), It should be about, where are the good schools? Why are they working, and how can we replicate them.
On managing time—I was int he studio until 2am last night and then I woke up at 7am to be here. You know, that’s just my life. I do the things that I want to do, and that i love to do, I don’t wake up do anything that I don’t wanna do. I love doing this, i love talking about education, and I also love making music, and about to go on tour w/ Sade and have a good time. So I make it work.
