Insights Into Education Podcast

American education is caught at a cross roads. While there is no shortage of discussion about how to educate children moving forward, much either lacks historic insight into the fundamental building blocks that got us here, or is based by policies funded and dictated by private interests. In Insights Into Education Dan and Ed informally discuss the concerns of parents and teachers about the state of American education. They focus on what they have collectively learned in almost 100 years of experiences as teachers and administrators. They believe education must be focused on each individual child. They share a wealth of knowledge about experiential education. As parents, and having dealt with parents' concerns on many levels, they share insights into what parents need from teachers and the education system.

Dan and Ed welcome back Rosemary Agneessens, one of the most knowledgeable and energetic ladies we have the privilege of having as our guest. Rosemary shares insights into the amazing things happening for civic involvement and representative change in Arizona. She explains the Red For Ed movement that has activated educators, parents, and citizens in this Republican right to work state. Arizona, like too many other states where the will of the majority is not respected, is a state controlled by Dark Money and a Libertarian version of a legislature and government. It is a state where the will of the citizens has not been a consideration.

This Spring educators united throughout the state and addressed a 30 year system of starving public education, and false economic philosophies that only work for those in power. As the Red For Ed movement gained prominence, educators found their professional voices and fought for kids and their profession. Red For Ed is an exportable model that works to counter anti-democratic powers.

As a community organizer, Rosemary shares an exportable model for citizens who wish to take back their democracy. Her insights benefit communities everywhere.
