Dang, this is a rough week each month. But it sure beats the week before, when we have no idea if the show will fall into place! Today at least, it seems all but inevitable we'll have a dandy episode for you.
I just nailed down what I think is a final guest for a conversation about student rights -- what are students learning when they need to live in a world of lesser rights than adults? The president of the Minnesota Association of Secondary School Principals is going to be good enough to join us (along with some students) to address the realities of balancing rights versus the need to create a good learning environment.
Beyond that, here's a little of what's on the burner:
Lots more we'll (as usual) try to cram into that hour. Tickets (free, but we still call them tickets) are still available for Thursday's taping. Come join us!
Well, this might be too revealing, but here goes anyways.
What you said about how high school relationships are an important education really hit a core with me.
When I was in high school, I was in all the "smart" classes, and basically had the same classmates through out highschool. I thought I had some social graces.
Then, when I went to college, I had a rude awakening. I was kinda awkward - socially speaking I meant. Not in a unhealthy way, just not as "cool" as I thought I was.
Anyways, thought I share that.
