I haven't listened to it yet but hope to get to it tomorrow. Dana Goldstein, who at times disappoints real reformers with her reporting, does the interviewing. (She did go a great piece on Alex last spring.)
Welcome to Schooled, Slate’s new podcast about education.
This episode features two teachers with experience in high-poverty urban schools. We’ll find out why John Owens, the author of Confessions of a Bad Teacher, lasted less than a year when he left his publishing job to teach in the Bronx. Alex Caputo-Pearl is a 20-year veteran social studies teacher in South Los Angeles, and a member of the inaugural 1990 class of Teach for America. He was recently forced to transfer schools after he led a controversial effort to rewrite the curriculum at Crenshaw High School.Podcast production by Sally Herships.
