What does it mean to be educated? What does intelligence truly mean? These are tough questions, but luckily we get the chance to sit down with Dr. Mike Rose to discuss them
Dr. Rose received a B.A. from Loyola University, an M.S. from the University of Southern California, and both an M.A. and Ph.D. from the University of California, Los Angeles. He has taught in a wide range of educational settings, from kindergarten to adult literacy programs. Currently, Dr. Rose is on the faculty of the UCLA Graduate School of Education and Information Studies.
Rose has written a number of books and has received a Guggenheim Fellowship, the Grawemeyer Award in Education, and the Commonwealth Club of California Award for Literary Excellence in Nonfiction. He has also been honored by the Spencer Foundation, the McDonnell Foundation Program in Cognitive Studies for Educational Practice, the National Council of Teachers of English, the Modern Language Association, and the National Academy of Education. He is the author of ten books including the book we discuss with him, Why School? Reclaiming Education for All of Us.
