Great insight into important current research on education

Glad to see this new podcast. The first episode with Dr. Arshad Ali on Muslim youth identity is superb. I'm a proud doctoral candidate at George Washington's Graduate School of Education and Human Development. Great to get to know Dean Michael Feuer more through these important conversations.
