About This Show
Ed's (Not) Dead will be our take on the hottest issues of the day affecting education. We think we bring a unique perspective to all things education because of our individual backgrounds and because once upon a time we worked closely together in the field. We rarely agree or see things the same way on education issues, but we share a profound commitment to improving education.

EXTRA: Proactive and Effective High School Interventions
During this super special episode extra of Ed's (Not) Dead, we endeavor upon an excellent interview with the principal and assistant principal of Minnetonka High School; Mr. Jeffrey Erickson and Mr. Robb Virgin (respectively). Jeffrey and Robb have developed an effective and proactive way to support students throughout the school year, known as "Minnetonka Academic Success Time" or "MAST." During our interview, we discuss what MAST is all about, what kind of results they have seen from their interventions, and how they have managed the systemic changes to their daily schedules to incorporate MAST (from a leadership perspective). For more information, here are some links and resources: Beyond 140: This is a faux infomercial that the team created to "sell" MAST. It is both hilarious AND clear in how it explains how students should be using MAST. Minnetonka High School Website
