[PODCAST] #525: The St. Louis Movement’s Impact On American Schooling (With Kevin Cole)

At the end of October, I drove to St.Louis, Missouri to meet Brett Veinotte of the School Sucks Project on his “School Sucks Across America Tour”.  Our time was limited but we had a great post-lunch drive, podcast session and trip to the City Museum while I gave an introduction into the St.Louis Movement’s impact on the American school system. For the full experience, I would recommend listening to the introduction on the audio file and resuming the rest of the podcast via the 9 clips in the playlist linked below.  – kc
