What Angela Maiers Talks About:
Liberating Genius is not an inspirational or utopian hope for our students; nor is it a quick-fix program to building a better system. It’s a movement designed to help leaders and learners break free from the addiction of security and acceptance of mediocrity and rekindle the genius within.
We can no longer afford as individuals or as a nation to allow our best talents to remain buried beneath well-intentioned but lifeless rules of school.
Liberating Genius is a framework and system that fuels innovation, creativity and ability to impact our learning and the world.
There is genius within; together let’s unleash it.

Mattering is the Agenda
