- Louisiana has a VAM scam going on. Shaun and Tim talk to Dr. Mercedes Schneider about how Louisiana’s teacher evaluation system is worthless and really serves as a dehumanizing system meant to harm the children and teachers of Louisiana.

- It seems the Opt Out bug is spreading. Just this week teachers at Garfield high school in Seattle refused to give their students the MAP test. Why? What would make teachers take such a risk? Tim and Shaun ask Garfield teacher Jesse Hagopian.
Here’s a report from Seattle. http://seattletimes.com/html/localnews/2020106684_notest11m.html?prmid=4939
