On the pod this week:
That feeling when what seems like an obviously great idea turns out to be a really bad idea once you stop and think about it some more...
Spoiler Alert: We had that feeling when we discussed Mayor Rahm's plan to change graduation requirements in Chicago to include having a post-secondary plan.
2nd Spoiler Alert: This episode contains explicit language and may not be suitable for educators who think the typical saccharine nature of the education conversation is useful, honest, or productive. (We told you this would be a different type of conversation about education!)
We know you've also got thoughts about this one, especially teachers in Chicago, so call us with your thoughts and reactions to our conversation at 312-772-6126 and we'll play it on the next episode. (Malia Obama, Arne Duncan, we're looking at you!)
Then we answer some calls and emails from a student teacher who has a few too many conflicting voices in his ear about what he should be working on as he begins his teaching career and a principal striving to differentiate her support for her teachers without making it seem like she's holding different or lower expectations across the staff.
We also follow-up on our discussion from Episode 1 about the new suspension policy in New York City, responding to a question from a listener.
