Brian Schultz was a teacher in Chicago’s public school system. His unconventional approach to teaching gave his students a new way to learn, and an opportunity to change their school for the better. He’s written a book about his experience called “Spectacular Things Happen Along The Way.”

And we’ll speak with Steve Barlow. He’s the Executive Director of the University Neighborhoods Development Corporation in Memphis. The UNDC is working with the University of Memphis to help the school participate in the life of its surrounding neighborhoods.
