For eight years, President Obama made the White House a place that brought people together-- incredible students, parents, principals, district leaders, school counselors, teachers, college presidents, professors, business leaders, and more. And after January 2017, the inspiring stories we heard and the incredible people we met no longer had a place to share their experiences and good ideas with folks across the country.

These stories constantly reminded and inspired us of people’s commitment to education. It is the ultimate bedrock of our society, and people are passionately fighting to make it better. At the White House we were fortunate to get to shine a spotlight on some of those incredible education advocates and practitioners, and we want to continue to shine that spotlight and talk about what’s working, how others can get involved, and hopefully be inspired along the way. We hope you’ll join us.

Refreshing and Inspiring

Learning so much from this podcast. As a 7th grade classroom teacher, I am so impressed by the range of perspectives the hosts have covered. I’m especially thankful for their respect for guidance counselors. Love the moment of hope every week!

Best education podcast

This podcast does an amazing job of getting into the weeds without losing the listener. The hosts are engaging, knowledgeable, and fun and the topics are relevant to what is going on in federal education policy without losing sight of what this means for classrooms and kids.
