Politics, the Public, & the Public Educator
A classroom teacher, a school board trustee, and an education lobbyist sit down to chat about the ongoing politicization of public education, discussing the shifts they’ve seen in parents, students, and the education world at large. How have the pandemic, social justice conversations, culture wars, and the deadliest school shooting in Texas history changed the environment? What are the national implications for Texas public school debates? And how can we protect the “public” in public ed?
