“Yes, you can quit traditional high school and everything will be okay” – Blake Boles
September 5 • 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm• Free
The Hive: Self Directed Learning for Teens presents author and thought leader Blake Boles. Blake’s talk addresses parents, teens, educators, and policymakers who are curious about alternatives to the norm. For more than a decade, Blake has worked with happy, thriving teenagers who made the decision to quit traditional school—or never went to school in the first place. Now Blake is touring the U.S. to give a new talk: “Yes, You Can Quit Traditional High School and Everything Will Be Okay.” Whether you’re skeptical about alternative education or you’re a seasoned educational rebel, this talk will inspire, inform, and entertain you with powerful stories of teenagers who have skipped high school and turned out just fine.
