Schools do not exist in a silo; they are tied to communities. High teacher turnover paired with brain drain of students leaving for educational opportunities can have dire consequences for communities that may already be economically or socially disadvantaged. How can we prepare students for sustainable careers and still encourage them to invest in their local economy? What are the benefits of retaining educated students for a community? And how can we support student success and foster community engagement among teachers and families?

In this episode, Kevin discusses community flourishing with real estate developer, author and entrepreneur, Majora Carter.
