If School Walls Could Talk:

A podcast to help schools discover broader perspectives and spark critical conversations on campus.


If School Walls Could Talk presents educators and school administrators with a range of perspectives on challenges and opportunities in independent schools. To help communities learn in the face of fast paced schedules, each episode is less than 25 minutes. Accompanying discussion guides and facilitation techniques for each episode help groups investigate how they might apply what they learned to take action in their own community.
