We couldn’t be more excited about our partnership with Thrival World Academies. Together we’re creating the largest network of publicly-funded travel abroad high schools in the country. The first class left Oakland for Thailand in January, where students are spending three months immersing themselves in the local culture as part of their state of California curriculum.
Thrival Executive Director Emma Hiza joined Rustic Pathways Student Impact Director Erin Murphy for a Facebook Live chat on Feb. 27. They discussed how we’re fundamentally changing education, provided an update about the students in Thailand, and so much more. Check out the video!
