The Praxis Mindset, Value-Creation, The Rise of Apprenticeships, & The Sleep in Your Car Test

Last night Praxis CEO Isaac Morehouse made an appearance on Tucker Carlson Tonight to discuss the value of apprenticeships as an alternative to the “college is the one right path for everyone” doctrine.

In this brief five minute segment, Isaac shares his thoughts on college debt, finding employment, the sleep in your car test, the importance of orienting education around value-creation, and how the Praxis program works.

Praxis: A Real World Education

The main goal of Praxis is to offer knowledge, experience, and educational resources with an emphasis on helping our participants 1) discover what they truly want and 2) improve their ability to actually create value in the marketplace.

Our new commercial introduces the first Praxis class and delves into a bit more detail on how the program is creating options for those who are looking for a real world education.

Philosophize through participation at the School of Doing

“The open secret of successful creating is simply this: one discovers what works by working.” -T.K. Coleman

As many of you may already know, I am the Education Director for an entrepreneurship-based alternative education program called Praxis.

Every week I write a blog post for my students and for anyone else who may benefit from my two cents on entrepreneurship, creativity, education, and personal development.

This past week, I wrote two posts: The first is called Philosophize through participation and the second one is titled The School of Doing.

If you’d like to check them out, feel free to click on the blog titles or just click here for the first one and here for the second one.

Wishing you a day of cheerful creating,

T.K. Coleman

 

Break the mold

That’s the slogan for Praxis.

According to its founder, Isaac Morehouse, “Praxis is an intensive 10-month program for those who want more than college. It’s for entrepreneurial young people who want real-world career experience and the best of online education all in one.”

I recently interviewed Isaac about the program and I’ve had several private discussions with him since then.

He’s made a believer out of me.

I’ve bought into his revolutionary vision and I intend to be a part of his efforts to fill a long-standing gaping hole in the educational marketplace.

My new role as a partner will encompass many elements. One of those elements is blogging.

Every week, I’ll be writing a special post over at the Praxis blog on some aspect of education, entrepreneurship, and/or personal development.

My first post is about the importance of separating ideas from idea-givers.

Don’t go to College: Isaac Morehouse on education, entrepreneurship, and what it takes to succeed in the real world

According to Isaac Morehouse, if we taught children how to ride bicycles in the same way we teach them in school, we’d have a world of people who knew lots of facts about bikes but lacked the ability to actually ride them.

Join FiFi & T.K. as they converse with Isaac about why a traditional college education wont cut it in the real world, why many college graduates feel lied to and ripped off, how education differs from schooling, and how Praxis can help students develop the practical skills that will help them survive and thrive in the emerging creative economy.
