As part of our ongoing, seemingly never ending conversations on education and pop culture, we sat down with Deborah Green, an educator/doctoral student to get her thoughts on current life in the K-12 environment.
How do teachers bring current events into the classroom? How does the educational system restore trust with local communities? What does the future of the classroom look like? How do students react to different policy changes like No Child Left Behind and Race to the Top? We cover these questions, plus a few more, in a far-ranging conversation. Let us know what you think!
