In this episode, Host Adam Wendt talks with Dana Fleming, Executive Director of the Eugene Education Foundation.
Dana talks about moving to Eugene and how different the education system is here compared to the ones she worked at in the southern U.S., and about the work the Eugene Education Foundation does locally and the importance of the organization to the community of teaching professionals.
They also discuss the importance of alternative funding sources for education and the complexities of working in the education field during COVID.
