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 invite Wendy Watson, an early childhood education expert, to share her views and experiences.  Wendy dispels any ideas that early – even pre-natal – experiences are not major, critical factors in human development. She presents factual information about the benefits of early childhood education.  She explains why brain development before the age of 8 is critical to human success and well being. After age 8 the damage done do to a lack of human interactions may be dealt with, but only as learned responses not natural inherent development.  Listen and affirm that what happens to human beings before kindergarten makes a major difference.  Wendy also shares information for parents about the myriads of resources available.
