Education Is Life

A Podcast hosted by Rob Huge - Founder of Greenfields Academy

There has to be a better way -
Let’s Discuss & Rethink Education

We are having honest discussions on the state of education: where it is, where it can be, and all of the stories in between.

  • Each week, the Education Is Life Podcast Show features a guest with a mission to incorporate learning about life as the sole purpose of what education should be.
  • The Education Is Life movement takes the approach of having an open dialogue about the state of education and where it is headed toward in the future.
