LTL Ep. 15: The Boy Crisis in Our Schools – Getting Reopening Right (ft. Shawn Hardnett)


After decades working in education, Shawn Hardnett could not ignore what he saw— school was simply not working for far too many boys. He made it his mission to help fix the problem and is now gearing up to start his third year as leader of an all boys middle school in Washington DC that serves the city’s two poorest wards. He and Erika looked at reopening through the lens of the boy crisis.
