You can solve problems by going Upstream. Dan Heath, the author of the new book Upstream, talks about the principles the Chicago Public School system used to go from a 52% graduation rate to one close to 80% in just a few years. Some of the same principles were used in Rockford, Illinois to be the first city that eradicated homelessness. Dan shares four strategies to move upstream to solve problems in schools and in our world today.
