A Lifetime of Knowledge: How Amen Rahh is Revolutionizing Education in America

Amen Rahh “The Revolutionary Principal” understands what it takes to succeed in education. As the founder and principal of University Pathways Public Service Academy, Principal Rahh achieved a 100% graduation rate for consecutive school years, with 90% of students accepted to four-year universities. He accomplished these lofty goals in one of the most challenging areas in the country, showcasing how the right educational system can succeed in any school. He wrote about his experiences in the best-selling book Revolutionary School Culture: The 6 Principles of Unlocking Your School’s Hidden Treasure, giving other educators the keys to transforming education at their school sites.

During his illustrious career, Principal Rahh has also developed a solution to a problem that researchers, educational leaders, and policymakers have spent decades trying to solve. Despite the billions of dollars in resources devoted annually to education and the thousands of initiatives launched at the beginning of each new school year, there remain systemic problems in schools and districts around the country.

As the founder of K12 Crypto, Rahh, along with co-founder BJ Abron, is on a mission to change the educational landscape for good. K12 Crypto incentivizes education in a way that has never been done before, providing a roadmap to success and learning opportunities along the way that will inspire students to take ownership of their education.

Rahh believes it is a system that can fundamentally transform education in America – and he is ready to prove it.

“To solve the problems of education, you need an educator who understands this world,” Rahh says. “I founded a school five years ago and we have had success in public schools, but that is not enough. So we started K12 Crypto to revolutionize the system.”

K12 Crypto is described as “learn to earn,” a multifaceted crypto platform that provides every kindergarten student with a locked wallet. As they progress through their school careers, certain actions are incentivized (for example, attendance) which allow the students to accumulate crypto tokens. When the students graduate, their wallet is unlocked, giving them full access to the wealth they have grown along the way. As part of the program, students also receive robust financial literacy courses throughout their educational journey – so they are not only incentivized to attend school and increase their fundamental knowledge, but also to gain key insights into business and finance.

Principal Rahh developed revolutionary methods to incentivize his students, achieving (and repeating) an unprecedented 100% graduation rate. K12 Crypto is a way to incentivize students on a larger scale, inspiring them to partake in their educational development, while tackling one of the most pressing issues in education: the student debt crisis.

Because Rahh sees all students as emerging creators, K12 Crypto empowers them to take control of their own learning and the autonomy to make their own decisions upon graduation. They can use their accumulated wealth to pay for college, launch their own business, or any number of options. Most importantly, K12 Crypto opens the door to opportunity for students – a powerful motivating factor that Rahh has used to inspire his students already.

“Perhaps the most exciting aspect of K12’s vision is not merely that we incentivize the students to learn, address student loan debt, or even the potential for any student, over the course of their K-12 education, to accumulate wealth,” says Abron. “The most exciting aspect is that when a student completes their education, they will have developed a lifetime of knowledge that will help them walk down the path to a brighter future.”
