Apple Podcasts | Android | Spotify | Google Podcasts | Email | RSS

Many K-12 schools across the United States are facing criticism for demonstrating a bias toward left-leaning sociopolitics, while others feel they are not doing enough. Today’s episode makes the case for viewpoint diversity in K-12 schools and the importance of teaching the skills of respectful discourse, regardless of one’s ideological stance.  Today’s blog, Why K-12 Needs Viewpoint Diversity Now was written by Will Reusch. Will is a high school history teacher and the co-moderator of the Heterodox K-12 community. You can learn more about our 20+ HxCommunities here. The piece is narrated by Richard Davies.
