Some great inspiration from New Schools Venture Fund that’ll have you watching the entire series: Stubbornly optimistic, entrepreneurs believe they can make a difference, in spite of the odds. And they don’t stop at just thinking these innovative thoughts — entrepreneurs then create new organizations to make the changes they want to see in the world. And by doing so, they inspire others to follow. Above, watch a former high school history teacher, Scott Given, who became the Principal of Excel Academy Charter School in 2005. For three years he was part of a comprehensive school improvement effort there. Given now leads Unlocking Potential Schools, a nonprofit school turnaround organizations which took over its first school in the fall of 2011.
