Conversation 56 - Jennifer Binis - Changing the Narrative

July 12th, 2018

Jennifer Binis, host of the EdHistory101 Podcast, is an educator and amateur historian. She joins me this week to talk history (or course) and the importance of knowing the foundations of our modern education system. We cover everything from the influence of white colonial thinking and the false narrative of factory-based education systems, to the importance of race and gender in the modern landscape. Most vital to being a modern educator, she thinks, is one's abitliy to question the current narrative, and find fresh, thoughtful voices and help to make them louder so that the conversation on education becomes richer and more nuanced.
