In an edu-sphere rampant with those attempting to change the system from the outside, it's refreshing to hear teachers making daily changes in their classroom. In this podcast, I (Chris) talk to Kevin Wilcox - a veteran social studies teacher - about his efforts to remove grading in his classroom, the struggles he's faced, and how he perseveres in doing what's best for kids. Then, Benjamin Goes talks to me about his journey in creating radical independent study program.
This type of work is often undervalued and under appreciated. No matter the area - people are making positive changes. We must keep pushing forward!
