Chelsea Handler – Netflix


Chelsea invited our very own Skid Row Learning Center Instructor, Allison Maldonado on her show to talk about why education is important and what we should be doing to help more students learn.

Chelsea asks her dinner party guests about the teachers who made meaningful impacts on their lives. From the nun who saved Mary McCormack from first-grade humiliation to the ethics professor who could’ve made Rashida Jones throw her own ethics code out the window – it’s safe to say that a good (or good-looking) teacher can truly make a lasting impact.

Here are a few sound bites from the show:

Education is the antidote to ignorance

Education is the great equalizer

I want to empower my students through education to break the cycle of homelessness and help them to feel powerful and to feel strong.
