Pete (@mr_van_w) and John (@jfcatto) discuss plans for the holidays and vale Stan Lee (but Marvel is better). Then John questions basic human rights for a while. 

Finally, John continues to question the purpose of education and wonder why we as teachers are not able to agree on one.

Pete then considers the purpose of report cards and how they could be made to provide more relevant feedback for students growth.
