ClassCast Podcast Ep.033 features host Ryan Tibbens sharing his views about reopening schools in the fall and, more importantly, advice about how teachers, administrators, parents, and students can all adjust their rhetoric to achieve better results. In recent weeks, social media posts from parents and from teachers have turned increasingly vitriolic, illogical, and unproductive. Private pages and Facebook groups have emerged catering to every possible reopening preference, and in those echo chambers, the people who are supposed to care most about students -- parents and teachers -- seem to have lost focus on the purpose of school -- education. From concerns about childcare to teachers' health, from tax rates to technology, we would all benefit from a little more composure and compromise. Check out this sub-30 minute episode and let us know what you think.
Be sure to like, follow, subscribe, share, and comment to spread the word and increase the level of discourse about education. (Then take a break from social media to reset your composure!)
