[The Knowledge Project Ep. #64] Greg Walton: The Big Impact of Small Interventions
Shane Parrish: Greg, you’ve been called an intervention guru and I’m wondering—before we even get into what an intervention is, and what they look like and the beliefs they’re trying to address, I want to go back one step and ask how you got interested in interventions to begin with.
Greg Walton: It really began in high school. I was part of this group called Students Educating Each other about Discrimination. It was called SEED. We were basically a group of high school students who went into middle-school to sixth-grade classrooms and led role playing exercises and discussions around inequality and race, class, gender in American society. It was as part of that group that I became aware of the persistence of really large differences in educational success for students from different social class backgrounds and different racial ethnicities.
