Essential listening about children and education

This is an excellent podcast; informative, thought-provoking, and a great listen. I’ve already learned much from the perspectives they and their guests bring, and their dedication to educational justice is clear and inspiring.

Another great discovery for 2020

You have Dr. Greg Carr and his conversation with El-Mekki to thank for this review. I am a new school counselor by way of being a former CPS worker who always had a passion for educational issues. I’m discovering new things being on the inside of the school system and am so glad that I have the wisdom from you to give me greater perspective. I have to be more mindful and strategic now, but I understand that I’m still fighting. Keep doing what you. You make me better for it.
