Our January 13 show features Dr. Kati Haycock, President of the Education Trust in Washington, DC.
Kati Haycock is one of the nation's leading advocates in the field of education. She currently serves as President of The Education Trust. Established in 1996, the Trust works for the high academic achievement of all students at all levels, pre-kindergarten through college. The organization’s goal is to close the gaps in opportunity and achievement that consign too many low-income students and students of color to lives on the margins of the American mainstream.
Known for years as a powerful force on education policy, The Trust is often described as “the most important truth teller” in American public education. But the organization also works hand in hand with educators and civic leaders in their efforts to transform schools and colleges into institutions that serve all students well.
Join us for a fantastic show on January 13 at 2pm for what promises to be a very informative show! Call in and "be the conversation".

Join us - Call In - Be The Discourse. December 9: (2 - 3pm) EST.
Major media outlets have been dominated by the incident captured on cell phone videos at Spring Valley High School where a student was forcibly removed from a classroom. Views on this incident has placed civil rights advocates, school and district leaders, student advocates, school officers and education experts at odds. We have confirmed Dr. Jared Scherz and Mr. Curt Lavarello to participate with us on a discussion about the SC school incident and what we might learn from it.
Dr. Jared Scherz is the founder of TeacherCoach (www.teachercoach.com), an online platform that integrates personal growth with professional development. As a clinical psychologist, author, and educational consultant, working with educators for over twenty five years, Dr. Scherz believes in the paradoxical theory of change, in that a greater understanding of what keeps a person or system stuck is needed before sustainable change is possible. His work includes a number of issues including school violence prevention, the organizational health of schools, and the personal wellness of educators.
We also have Mr. Curt Lavarello - Executive Director of School Safety Advocacy Council. Curt Lavarello served as a 25+ year Law Enforcement Executive in South Florida. During his tenure as a police officer, Curt has held assignments on road patrol, detective bureau, gang task force unit, traffic division and 18 years as a school resource officer (SRO) and Patrol and SRO Supervisor.
