The Tesla Academy with Brad Barber Transformative Principal 293

Brad Barber is a former business owner who is now an educator who founded a school called the Tesla Academy. At the Tesla Academy, they coach students rather than teach them.

* Business process outsourcing. * Went back to school as a teacher. * Started at a charter school. * Not the primary person who delivers the content. * Education is so inefficient. * I can teach it, but I want my students to learn how to learn. * The difference between a coach and a teacher. * They’ve been surviving school for 9 or 10 years. * The teachers become babysitters (in other classes) and that’s not what we’re about. * We’re observing the entire time. * Kids understand that the technique wasn’t right
