This week we’re joined by Miguel Cardona, the U.S. Secretary of Education. We cover why schools aren’t evolving fast enough to keep up with current challenges, how the shifting roles of schools and teachers are leaving many educators without the resources they need, and remaking the system so that it’s more about students and less about test scores and resume-building. Plus, staff writer Kasaun Wilson reveals that he lost a bet when Jon actually showed up at our holiday party, and Deniz Çam from our research team discusses the horrible legal limbo documented Dreamers are caught in — and how we can help.
Season 2 is now streaming on Apple TV+.
