Feckless Millennials, Equity with Troy Boddy, Casey’s Future in Higher-Ed
During today’s show, we discuss the following topics during our first segment:
- Clandestine meeting between Randi Weingarten (President of TFA) and Steve Bannon, former top advisor to President Trump.
- Reed College, a private liberal arts school in Oregon, is experiencing ongoing and persistent student protests over a required humanities course: “Lectures for one of Reed College’s signature learning experiences, a humanities course on the ancient Mediterranean, were canceled after protesters tried to interrupt the class to protest perceived Eurocentrism. What’s the future for courses grounded in ancient — largely Western — texts?”
In our second segment, we have yet another excellent guest to continue our conversations over equity in schools, Mr. Troy Boddy. Troy Boddy is currently the Director of Equity Initiatives in Montgomery County Public Schools in Maryland.
- Why did Steve Bannon meet with teachers union leader Randi Weingarten? The man who set it up says Trump ‘likes her.’
- Professors like me can’t stay silent about this extremist moment on campuses
- Occupation of HUM 110
- Tami Jimenez (Twitter) , elementary teacher and education enthusiast! Check out her podcast, “Time to Teach” on Libsyn!
