Excellent

An eye-opening account of the desegregation struggle in Delaware that culminated in the Brown v. Board of Education decision. In dramatic audio from the period, we hear about the courageous students of the Milford Eight, and their champions and opponents. Some of it sounds unsettlingly similar to what we’re experiencing today.

Golden find!

I’ve only listened to two episodes, but I have to say, I LOVE this idea! For anyone who’s remotely interested in the scope of K-12 education and even for those who work in the sphere, this is such an insightful look at components of the inner-workings of school districts. Please continue to publish these incredible podcasts!

Must-listen for change agents in ed!

Thank you for compiling such insightful and inspirational case studies. Two things impressed me most: 1. The balance of positivity, given impressive student results in each story, and the sober reality of the all-but-impossibly challenging work ahead 2. Every single time the narrator said “the educators listening are probably thinking ‘wow, that’s great, but HOW did that work?,’” she is spot on and follows with a clear and concise summarized explanation of how districts implemented their adopted strategies. Every episode left me satisfied yet eager to learn more next time. Thanks again, and here’s to our kids!
