Eric Alper on John Mann

By Stephen Hurley

Host Stephen Hurley scans the education ecosystem, looking for the people and ideas that are starting to change the way we think about teaching, learning, schools and communities.

Eric Alper was connected with John Mann in a very unique and personal way. As his publicist, Eric is able to provide insights on John’s motivation, spirit and sense of vision and integrity. Eric called into The Dock during our broadcast that explored the impact that the death of a musician can have on us, individually and collectively.

Here is my conversation with Eric Alper.
