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!
