Re-thinking Education

Every child deserves a chance at a college education, but does every child need one?

Life Lesson

I came across the photo at the bottom of an old cardboard Leinenkugel's box, a remarkably sturdy box that has held most of my photos as I bounced from apartment to apartment for the last 13 years. Late on a Saturday night a few weeks ago I was packing up to move again, trying to thin my pack-rat collection once more before loading my car. Invariably when I do this, I'll come across something that stops me, something that reminds me of a moment or experience I haven't thought of in years.

About

Myles Dannhausen

I'm a freelance writer, editor and video producer and have served on the boards of organizations in family services, the arts, municipal planning, school finance, and youth sports. Still, my most valuable education came as the owner of a bar and restaurant, as a high school basketball coach, and as the news editor for an independent alt-weekly, learning on the job in my hometown.

For the past seven years I've done promotional work for great events in my hometown including the Door County Half Marathon, Door County Beer Festival, Peninsula Century Ride, Door County Pond Hockey Tournament and the Ride for Nature to benefit the Ridges Sanctuary.

I like a good beer, photography, the Green Bay Packers, and a challenge. More than anything I love a great conversation and telling a great story, usually in writing.

I live in Chicago's Humboldt Park neighborhood.
