This week on the Real Education Podcast I interview Ethan Knight of Portland, Oregon: a guy who knows more about gap years (the time that young people take off between high school and college) than pretty much anyone else.
We talk about the pluses and minuses of today's college experience, solo gap years versus group programs, and the value of taking time away from academics to explore, serve, work, and travel.
You'll also hear how I decided to start Unschool Adventures after Ethan didn't hire me to run one of his programs, way back in 2008.
