In this episode we talk about the impacts of exhaustion.

 

The Culture Wars are alive and well. Schools are the battlegrounds once again. Education is a political act and again we see how the conservatives/trads are looking to push education History and Maths education into a back to basics approach. It makes Shawtima’s tummy hurt.

 

Pete learns about Temptation Bundling, this is something that he does all the time. 

 

But our jobs are always political, schools are where the next generation’s culture is started. If it looks like a fascism, smells like a fascism, walks like a fascism, it’s probably a fascism. But this has outcomes that are purely skills based and academic - regardless of the impact on the culture at large.

 

Streaming/tracking also hinders students and their education. This isn’t surprising at all, but a large collection of data is reviewed.

The greatest moment of televised sports in human history. How are you human if you keep it together watching this.  FULL MATCH - Shawn Michaels vs. Ric Flair – Career Threatening Match: WrestleMania XXIV

 

But we end it all in a nice reflective phase where we give thanks for those that helped us become the teachers we are.

 

Also, if you know how Daylight Savings works, don’t at me, I just don’t care.
