#137 – Princi-PAL

On this special episode, we visit W.L. Henry Elementary School in Hillsboro, Oregon to take a tour with principal Lisa Aguilar Fasel. W.L. Henry is a completely dual-lingual school, which means half the day is taught in English, and half in Spanish. It has a 90% Hispanic student population, and is implementing an amazing environment for learning and for emotional growth. The first half of the episode is a sit-down interview, and the second is a walking tour of the school. It's a fascinating and reassuring look at public education from a person whose goal it is to foster the inherent value of each and every student.
