I would like to thank the Yale Alumni Association for allowing me to moderate one of several panels on entrepreneurship, as a part of the annual Careers, Life and Yale event held in April. It was so inspiring to convene with several talented alumni and students who have entered, or are planning to enter, the entrepreneurial space. One of the day's key points of wisdom, put forth so eloquently by trustee and serial entrepreneur Kevin Ryan, is that in the start-up phase, we must make sure that our product or service is absolutely stellar. I'm sure we can all agree upon the value of this advice.

What happens to the hearts, minds and spirits of children who live 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, for 3 years in an under-resourced, failing school? Who will they become--as human beings? My new book, Sartre and No Child Left Behind: An Existential Psychoanalytic Anthropology of Urban Schooling (2015), offers some probing insight into these questions. Professor Imo Imeh, a brilliant visual artist and scholar, provided the stunning artwork for the cover. Follow the link below to learn more:
