Quick check-in leads us into Rodrigo's visit to SXSWedu, which is a ComicCon of sorts, except it's framed around education. He touches on the breakout sessions that he went to and will be bringing back to our district, as well as some of the booths on the floor that impressed him.
Most significant for discussion on the podcast is the cutting edge speech by Dr. Chris Emdin titled, "Thank you very much, we got it from here." Borrowed from ATCQ, of course. We will be seeking to have him on the podcast.
We also get into more about toxic educational environments, this time in Louisiana. A young man by the name of Jaylon Sewell was suspended from school for a hairstyle inspired by Odell Beckham Jr. He and his friends, all African American children, have been suspended and harassed for hairstyles like braids and twisties.
There'smany more smaller discussions. Hope you enjoy the episode.
