When you visit StarShine Academy in one of the hardest hit areas in Phoenix, AZ you immediately understand that it has been a process to transform the single most important element for our future: our children through education!
A K-12 school focused on the principles and values that kids and children need to learn for todayâs world which of course will include how they dedicate their lives for something meaningful.
When I met Trish McCarthy over three years ago she talked so passionately about the kids and teenagers they were teaching at StarShine that when I had the opportunity I went for a visit (walls are painted in Disney Â® Blue!) and I had the incredible chance to talk to the seniors and juniors who amazingly were from different countries and were not going through the best of times; but that all changed in StarShine. In Trishâs words: âOur non-profit charter school prototype, StarShine Academy, has given us a live, testing model for cutting-edge practices, tools, educational methodologies and technologies.â
Since then, Trish and so many incredible individuals have started new and incredible ideas and initiatives to promote further education. Listen to the interview with Trish and learn about the X-PrizeÂ to end illiteracy and the Vatican document on Education Sustainability. They are all working together to design the curriculum for the new way of teaching for the future.
