There are many good schools that try to ensure that every student gets the best education possible and an equal opportunity to succeed in their studies and extracurricular activities. Our guest says that despite efforts on the part of school administrators and teachers, there is still a racial achievement gap in even the most diverse and progressive schools. We discuss why the gap exists, how it affects the lives of students during and after their school years , and what educators and the community can do to help students of all races and ethnicities achieve.
We are a culture that’s obsessed with the future and technology. We want to “seize the future” like no other generation before, and become available to anyone 24/7 through the internet, wifi and cell phones. Our guests address these phenomena and discuss why it’s happening and how concentrating too much on the future and the internet affects our world, our relationships and our lives.
