    What an excellent start to a vital conversation!

  • An ed talk you'll want to join
    October 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 this
    October 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.

  • So excited for more!

    This episode is a great kickoff to what will surely be an amazing podcast. So excited for the thoughtful conversations Ikhlas and Lane are going to bring their listeners!

Hosted by Ikhlas Saleem and Lane Wright
