We’re taking some time off after recording a bunch of studio shows. For your listening pleasure, here’s a studio show from July 2013 with one of Slekar’s colleagues, Dr. Jed Hopkins. We get into some insightful international comparisons.
Close friends and associates know me by name, Shaun Johnson. No, I’m not the gymnast. I tried as best as I could to go by a pseudonym because, well, I caught a lot of flak from my former supervisors in higher education because of my views. That is, skeptical and largely against Common Core, critical […]
You can access the article here from the journal’s website. It’s going to be one of a few others in an upcoming print edition. Basically, it recalls my first year or so as someone who has increased efforts in direct advocacy for public schools. It has been challenging in many ways and the article flushes […]
We’ve invited a great guest, which is why the special day and time: Alexia Garcia, student organizer of a Portland boycott of the OAKS test. Probably the best test acronym by far. There’s some information here I’ll quote from Education Week, which is in turn from OregonLive: Alexia Garcia, a Lincoln High School senior, said […]
Listen here on Blog Talk Radio. But remember, you can join us every week at 6PM EDT. Or, listen to previous episodes for free at BTR or take them with you on iTunes. I’ve made it pretty easy for you.
This is my opinion. What I might say here could be controversial. Here it goes.

Who would have thought, I rinky-dink little podcast I started about two years ago would make it to syndicated talk radio? But here it is, professionally done, coming up this Sunday with our first guest Diane Ravitch. Perhaps this is unremarkable, I don’t know. But I don’t have a publicist or any actual support for […]
Here’s the quick promo for a nationally syndicated radio show that Tim and I recorded early January. There’s a clip from our interview with Diane Ravitch. She’s a good sport! Sounds great, disseminate widely people!
Tim and I just finished up, you can have a listen here. We went a little Arne Duncan go-nuts today, but there was a lot to talk about.
A pre-holiday treat for everyone. Enjoy! We’re going to talk a whole lot about Arne Duncan, a lot going on with him this last week or so.
An early show today, check it out, progressive education chat! We’ll discuss vouchers, teacher evaluations, and the eradication of creativity in schools. Listen live or an archive, enjoy.
