What if the key to transforming education lies in the power of individual curiosity? This idea is at the heart of Kelly Smith’s mission.
As an MIT engineer turned social entrepreneur, Smith founded Prenda, an organization that has launched hundreds of microschools across the US. His philosophy encourages us to learn as much as possible about our areas of interest, to practice selective listening to avoid biases, and to have the courage to take the first steps toward realizing our ideas.
By adhering to these principles, Smith has enabled his organization to thrive and expand, illustrating the potential transformative power of guided curiosity.
