Stephen Ritz on the 'whole school' approach to education

March 9, 2020

Stephen Ritz is an educator in the South Bronx, where he takes a "whole school" approach to education, rooted in health, wellness and mindfulness. In the poorest Congressional district in America, where 45,000 people live within 8 square blocks of each other and healthy, fresh food is not available, he teaches students about growing and preparing their own vegetables in school farms. "Of all the crops I've grown," he says, "my greatest crops have been my students themselves." From GreenBiz 20.
