John (@jfcatto) and Pete (@mr_van_w) decided last week that they wanted the podcast to be less about parochial political issues, to allow them to focus on classroom pedagogy and be more globally relevant. This week they throw this out the window when John discusses their local members plan to introduce shooting as an "elective" in schools and Pete counters by discussing the state governments minimum graduation standards and the idea of introducing selective primary schools. So much for strategic direction.
