Daniela Hernández Silva
Behind the Scenes: Defying the Odds in Rural Colombia?

Today Daniela Hernández Silva joins me to talk about her FreshEd Flux podcast episode, which aired last week. Spoiler alert: we talk about her Flux episode in depth in today’s show. So, if you haven’t already listened to her flux episode, I recommend you hit pause now before continuing with this episode.

In our conversation today, Daniela details how podcasting allowed her to combine her creative and academic sides into one. She also provides additional context on education in rural Colombia. She argues that the Escuela Nueva model of rural education has had a lot of success increasing access to education across Colombia, but it does not fit the country’s context today. Either the model or the context needs to change.

Daniela Hernández Silva recently finished her Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree in Education Policies for Global Development (GLOBED). She is the first FreshEd Flux fellow to air her episode.
