HOW STUDENTS TAKE FLIGHT WITH YASS PRIZE FINALIST SOAR ACADEMY

In this episode, Michael sits down with Kenisha Scaggs, founder of the Soar Academy, to talk about its history of Soar Academy, how she defines student success, and why more school funding won’t get us to where we need to go.

Scaggs originally started her microschool turned private school in her attic to help kids who were desperately behind in their education. Helping neurodivergent kids reach new heights, Scaggs noted that the classroom environment is different for her students.
