    TTT Episode 108: Extra Work and A Garbage Education Report

    TTT Episode 108: Extra Work and A Garbage Education Report

    This week Pete (@mr_van_w) laments the extra workload caused by menial tasks that have no benefit to the teacher or the students but are mandated within schools or systems. New contributor Shawtima (@ShawtimaSmiles) invites us to join her on her quest to improving her workflow and taking some of the power back. John (@jfcatto) comments on a report written by an idiot, who somehow managed to get a job as chair of a committee, that doesn't even garner support from the members of the committee.
    Also - who knew John would know what Dementors are?
