Earlier this year, over 30,000 public school teachers went on strike in Los Angeles, for the first time in nearly 30 years. Educators reminded us that we need to think about students in a holistic way.
In our newest episode of Re:Work Radio — School Days — we speak with one of those educators. High school history teacher Rudy Dueñas takes us through his own history at LA Unified School District — first as a student, then an educator — and the moments that transformed him in and out of the classroom.
