As part of my ongoing work with Kids & Race I wrote a blog post a few weeks ago called "The Case For Sending Your Privileged Kid to a Low-Performing School." I was so excited to share information about school segregation with the K&R audience. And they seemed to like it, too! The post went low-key viral, and so K&R's director, Jasen Frelot, asked me to come into the studio and record a podcast.
It was a little bit of a learning curb, but so much fun! My voice carries REALLY WELL into the microphone, so I kept having to scoot back from the mic. Jasen and I had a fun and informative conversation about how our society judges "good" and "bad" schools, the pitfalls of relying on standardized tests, and whose kids were the stinkiest.
