Eric Schwarz is Co-Founder and CEO of Citizen Schools and a long-time colleague. Eric pioneered the incorporation of apprenticeships in afterschool programs and demonstrated what can be done when an afterschool program partners with the law community, business leaders, and museums. Eric is about to release his new book entitled The Opportunity Equation: How Citizen Teachers Are Combating the Achievement Gap in America's Schools. The book can be purchased here.
Eric is currently on a tour to introduce his book based on decades of work using his apprenticeship model. We will interview Eric in an upcoming blog post.
Meanwhile, you have a chance to meet him in person and discuss his book on Friday, September 12, 2014 at Nextdoor in San Francisco. Click here for more information and to RSVP.
