What would you ask a Workspacian?
At the AEROx (Alternative Education Resource Organization) conference held at Workspace April 6-8, 2018, a panel of young Workspacians took the stage. Uncoached and entirely authentic, each student weighed in with his/her perspective on the Workspace experience and the extensive benefits of alternative education.
We welcome you to sit back and take in the insights, observations, and hopes and dreams of these six students as they look back on their first year at Workspace Education. And, if you are looking for the answer to a specific question, below the video is a list of questions as well as the timing of where they fall in the video.
