Defining "Our" with Nicholas Dorn

by Kevin Allen   |   Jun 9, 2017

At Take Note we like to say, "This is Our City. Our Schools. Our Future." but, as we've been noting, the word "our" is used differently by different people. This week, we asked Nicholas Dorn, director of education with the KC Social Innovation Center, what "our" means to him. Too often, he says, we think of the biggest challenges as someone else's problem.

Follow "Take Note: Our City. Our Schools. Our Future" as together, we tell the stories that matter, the stories that make an impact. We want to know — what stories do you have for us, and what can we find out for you? Email us at and follow the entire project at
