PART 1: Preparation For Citizenship

Topic:
Today I discuss collective and authoritarian schooling with a veteran teacher who walked away from the public school setting just four weeks into his new job. Rich Nastro explains why he did this, and what he saw while he was there.

We'll Discuss...
-Literacy and Information Literacy
-Public Education and the Welfare State, Failure Reframed As Success
-Portrayal of the Public Education System In Film
-Introducing Philosophy to the History Cirriculum
-Squeeky Wheels Get the Grease
-Working with Students From Broken Homes
-Day-to-Day living/short-term thinking of abused kids
-Preparation for the Economic Realities of the 21st Century
-Grades and Diplomas as "Job Tickets," but where are the jobs?
