2022 Episode 25: Education and Race, School Safety and Gun Violence, and Preschool Expansion Challenges

Jun 14, 2022 | Podcast

In another education-focused episode, Brian Callanan of Seattle Channel follows up with Dr. Stephan Blanford of the Children’s Alliance (and former Seattle School Board Director) about his work with acclaimed author Heather McGhee and her study of race-based, “zero-sum” thinking, with a special focus on educational opportunity.  Dr. Blanford also discusses growing concerns over school safety following the Uvalde, Texas school shooting, a lack of workers for our state’s expanding preschool program, and the present and future impacts of the COVID pandemic on our education system.  Thanks to all SNVB patrons for your patronage, and if you’re not a patron of the podcast, please support it on Patreon!
