EPISODE 102: Bost reminds us that teachers power the education engine as we debate Kirwan

In our holiday search to tell some great stories and learn more during the end of this decade, we are presenting some “bonus” Baltimore Positive while Nestor searches the Far East for answers.

Education, teachers and making our children smarter and brighter and better has been a constant theme since we launched this Baltimore Positive initiative in April. With the Kirwan Commission battle looming, and a Governor who has all but declared war on the most appealing reform of public education we’ve seen in our lifetimes, we wanted to talk to more teachers about how to make our whole system better.

Cheryl Bost has been an elementary classroom teacher in Baltimore County for more than 20 years. She is currently on leave to serve as the Maryland State Education Association President.

This is a long look at the reality of being an elementary teacher in 2020.

We have taken some time this month to add some “holiday bonus” editions of Baltimore Positive that will be coming your way into December with Marty Schwartz, Mike Ertel, Debbie Phelps and Isaac Hametz and  in addition to our long-form chats with Adrienne Jones, Sonja Santelises and the incomparable Wes Moore.

Nestor and Don are also just released a 100th episode retrospective on Baltimore Positive.

We’d be “thankful” this holiday season if you subscribe to Baltimore Positive and make it a part of your weekly routine!
