High School Hamster Wheel Podcast on Choosing College with Michael Horn
Michael’s journey was an accidental journey, as he believes many are. Coming out of college, Michael had a writing and public policy background. He became sick of the Washington D.C. and writing world and wanted to get more on the active side of creating the change. So he went to business school and while there took Clay Christensen’s class on Innovation and it totally changed the way he saw the world. Midway through the class, Clay told the students if anyone would like to write a book with him about public education to please stop by. And Michael stopped by which led him right back into writing and public policy but he also helped start the Clayton Christensen Institute, a nonprofit think tank that he ran for about ten years Then about five years ago, he left the Institute.
