Policy is not an exciting topic for most. It tends to be a conversation that only includes the privileged few: Politicians, lawmakers, and academics while leaving citizens, students, parents and educators left to deal with the results. Here at EduPoliCafe its your voice that matters most.
In this episode we will talk about why policy matters in education.
We will answer two key questions
What is Educational Policy? Why citizens like you should care about it?

Graphic Policy is back with a brand new episode with special guest, and award winning journalist Spencer Ackerman.
Comics have often featured torture as a method for the heroes to extract information or get them to their goal. We most recently saw this in Marvel and Netflix's Daredevil, where torture is a key point in advancing the hero's plot. We'll discuss torture in comics, and its place in the modern stories and the world.
Spencer Ackerman is the U.S. national security editor of the Guardian, where he was part of the team that won the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service Journalism for the NSA surveillance revelations provided by whistleblower Edward Snowden. A former senior writer for Wired, Ackerman won the 2012 National Magazine Award for Digital Reporting for his series about Islamophobia in FBI counterterrorism training. Having reported from Iraq, Afghanistan, Guantanamo Bay and numerous ships, bases and a submarine, Ackerman in 2015 exposed a secretive incommunicado police detention center in Chicago called Homan Square. A Brooklyn NY native, his mother taught him to read with Bill Mantlo's Incredible Hulk run.
We want to hear your thoughts on the topic. You can Tweet them to us at @graphicpolicy or call in live.
In this episode we talk about the combining of Politics and Religion. From the history of the Revolutionary War to today.
What is really happening to our state, to our country and to our world? Will there be an economic collapse? Will our educational system continue to dumb down our children? Will America become George Orwell’s “1984?”
Are you ready to look behind the curtain, to know the truth, to pierce the veil? Then prepare to go “Down the Rabbit Hole” with Ed and Bill. Politics, Economics, Religion, Culture and History will be just some of the topics to be explored as we peel back the layers to find the answers to all we seek.
