Check out Season 5 of Pushing The Edge with Greg Curran, where we focus on ‘Standing Up for Our Students in Challenging Times’.
We critically examine, diversity, inclusion and neutrality; how to stand up when hatred is stoked; and how to create more representative spaces and curricula in schools so that our students’ and their communities feel more valued.
Episode 39: Courageous Conversations in the Classroom with Val Brown
Standing up when hatred is stoked; building community through courageous conversations about race; and why representation and presence matters.
Episode 40: Nothing’s Neutral, Everything’s Political with Phiona Lloyd-Henry
Why does anti-oppressive education matter? Why is ‘neutrality’ problematic in education? How can we create culturally responsive curricula; and honor our students’ histories, existence, and ways of knowing.
