School Is In Session

In this episode, Lain interviews Mike Walsh about his background, why he became involved in public education and what the future holds for California schools.

Walsh is the former President of the California School Boards Association, a group representing nearly 1,000 California school districts and county offices of education. A seven-year veteran of the Butte County Office of Education Board, Walsh was elected to CSBA’s Delegate Assembly in 2010 and elected to the organization’s Board of Directors in 2011.

Walsh is a 1982 graduate of Las Plumas High School where he says he recorded perfect attendance while distinguishing himself in track and field, wrestling, football and student government.

In 2015, Walsh co-founded Beacon Results, an organizational growth and change management firm that works primarily with school districts and nonprofits to help them develop and align on their strategic plans.
