#vted Reads with Elijah Hawkes by The 21st Century Classroom published on 2020-09-10T17:20:31Z Listeners, I'm angry. I'm angry about the failure of our political leadership, the unmitigated disaster of climate change, and the risks we're asking our educators and students to take right now. I'm angry, and I'm hurt, and frustrated, and I'm not the only one. I know you're angry, and I know our students are angry. Our schools have long been held to the idea of being zones that are or should be, entirely free of politics. But how does that work in the real world? On this episode of vted Reads, we're re-joined by Vermont principal Elijah Hawkes. Hawkes has written a book called "School for the Age of Upheaval: Classrooms That Get Personal, Get Political, and Get to Work."
