As someone who sits at the nexus of next-generation learning models in K-12, it is refreshing every time I get a chance to go deep with Bryan in that he is extremely open to co-design and to figuring things out, using a growth mindset and a relentless resolve to push through the harder challenges of educating the kids who need it the most. We’ve had multiple engagements with him over the years, and he has been and continues to be a valuable member and chair of our advisory board.
