- An ed talk you'll want to joinOctober 23, 2017 by DenverRise from United States
So nice to listen to everyday people talking about everyday things happening in our public schools. Whether you're a parent, a teacher or a student, not only can you relate to the hosts, you wanna add your two cents right along with them!
- Been waiting for something like thisOctober 23, 2017 by gordonwrightmusic from United States
I care a lot about education and schools but feel like the other podcasts on this topic are either for policy wonks or classroom teachers, and nothing in between. These hosts really bring everyone in on what matters for public schools, they're really easy for anyone to relate to. Looking forward to seeing who else they interview.
