    Talking Education with Jason Kreutner

    JASON KREUTNER is founder and head of the University School of the Lowcountry (USL) which is a third-through-twelfth grade independent school in Mount Pleasant. In addition to a standard curriculum where math, science, humanities, writing, and language are given strong emphasis, USL features small classes, flexible course work based on skill and progress, and a program of “learning outside the classroom” where students spend one day per week (on over 30 field trips per year) experiencing direct interaction with, and service to, the community—all with the goal of balancing each student’s intellectual, physical, emotional, ethical, and social development. Peter sat down with Jason recently to talk about education, technology, and change.
