Very though provoking

This podcast always has great discussions. It provides educators with valuable knowledge. Dr. Eakins asks great questions and really prompts his guests to provide solutions to foster equity in schools.

Getting My Education

Every episode challenges, engages, and changes my way of thinking. Thank you, Doc! This podcast is a must for all educators- especially white folks like me who need our perspective shifted, our vocabulary modified, and our awareness heightened. I can’t recommend this enough.

Love the advocacy

So many great ideas here! I heard some episodes awhile ago, but I just came back to it and am catching up. I love that this is shedding light on small and big problems. It’s so nice to feel like someone understands the issues in education and is willing to dig deeper than bandaid solutions. I appreciate the balance of big picture ideas and useful strategies.
