In his new book, Uneducated, Christopher Zara tells a highly personal story about the education divide and the stigma of being degreeless in a 21st-century knowledge economy.

He retraces his ill-fated journey through an overcrowded public-school system; getting classified as “emotionally disturbed”; ejected in 11th grade; being trapped in low-wage service jobs throughout his 20s and 30s; landing a lucky break in journalism; and finally, his years-long struggle to assimilate as a high-school dropout in the elite world of New York City media.

Tune in to hear Christopher's answers to questions such as:

  • What happened to you in high school that got you kicked out in 11th grade?
  • How did you become an editor at a leading business magazine in NYC with only a GED?
  • How has your lack of a formal education impacted your approach to news coverage?
  • Why are large companies (Google, GM, IBM) relaxing their degree requirements now?
  • How has social anxiety impacted your career?
  • And much, much more!
