Dave Eggers' wish: Once Upon a School
Submitted by Bibliofuture on September 11, 2012 - 10:23pm
Accepting his 2008 TED Prize, author Dave Eggers asks the TED community to personally, creatively engage with local public schools. With spellbinding eagerness, he talks about how his 826 Valencia tutoring center inspired others around the world to open. http://www.ted.com/talks/dave_eggers_makes_his_ted_prize_wish_once_upon_a_school.html Libraries might not be able to duplicate what Eggers has done but I think there are seeds of ideas that could be used from what Eggers has done.
