What’s Become Clear: Questioning assumptions, reinventing schools

with Dr. Steve Wyckoff

Steve small


You may be wondering about the name of this podcast/blog, What’s Become Clear. Several years ago I had the opportunity to spend a couple of days listening to some of the best minds in America. One of those individuals was Tom Peters. Tom is considered to be one of the great business thinkers of our time and he did a wonderful presentation. At the end of his presentation he asked the question, “As a result of today’s conversation, what has become clear to you?” I thought it was a fascinating question and it really prompted me to think deeply. Since that time I’m forever asking people, “So what’s become clear to you?”
