Work with Marty Nemko: 8/15/19: Reinventing Education

  On the Aug 15, 2019 edition of Work with Marty Nemko, my wife, Dr. Barbara Nemko, the Napa County Superintendent of Schools and I debate how to reinvent education--no reforms here, reinvention, both K-12 and higher education, with some focus on the career-related issues. We'll also report new American Psychological Association research that should surprise no one who has been on vacation---The restorative benefit may be outweighed by the stresses before, during, and after the vacation.

Plus, you can call in for a Workover. Whatever your work problem, perhaps the more challenging the better, I'll do my best to help.

Work with Marty Nemko is heard every Thursday from 7 to 8 PM on KALW 91.7 FM in San Francisco and worldwide on KALW.org.

The programs are archived on NPR.org, iTunes, and in perpetuity on this web page.
