As some readers know, I regularly publish podcasts on my website The Open System. The podcast and website explores themes of family engagement, feedback loops between systems and communities and ways to make our education system work for the communities they serve.
This month, I interview Dr. Blake Noel, who recently completed his doctorate at the University of Michigan. This podcast explores fundamental issues at play in our schools: race, teacher practices and student dignity. And most consequentially, Dr. Noel offers a powerful way to adjust these dynamics and to restore dignity and respect to students.
