118. How Apprenticeship Plays a Role in the Future of Education with Rebecca DeMatteis & BJ Knutson

Apprenticeship is a classic mode of education that we have yet to tap into the full potential of in modern times. But there are organizations out there making the most of apprenticeship, and the benefits it can provide.
