Dani Grant (@thedanigrant) of USV joins Erik on this episode to talk about education. Dani has been doing a deep dive into education and shares a wealth of insights on how the current system works, its flaws, and the people working on new forms of education for all ages. They talk about: - Why the school system is broken and why it’s often thought of as “government-sponsored daycare.” - How homeschools actually work, and how it is different than what you might think. - Why religion was a precursor to organized education, and what insights it may have today for the future of education. - The “free learning” movement. - Her requests for startups in the space. - How to address problems of inequality in new forms of education. - How Dani (and Erik) might think about educating future children.
