Book Talk with Peter Smith

Peter Smith is a former member of Congress and former Lieutenant Governor of Vermont who led the effort to create a community college in Vermont, served as the first president of a California university, and served as Assistant Director General for Education for UNESCO (not to mention a Civic Genius Advisory Board member). That’s all to say, he knows a lot about education – and from every angle. His new book Stories from the Educational Underground: The New Frontier for Learning and Work, shines a spotlight on an untapped American resource: the extraordinary talent, intelligence, and potential that is currently ignored by the traditional college model.
