Adria Renke is the President of Brophy College Prep in Phoenix, Arizona, and has decades of experience in education. We have a wide ranging conversation about the importance of curiosity, organization and confidence in a young person's educational journey.

Adria also has a interesting perspective on worldwide diversity and the role our schools can play in forming citizens of the world. And finally, we talk about the importance of belonging to a people and of learning a moral code in the educational experience. 

A quick editor's note. I mentioned two books in this podcast:

The first is Leonardo da Vinci by Walter Isaacson. And the second is How to Win in a Winner-Take-All World by Neil Irwin.
