Interview on “Talk Out of Schools” Radio Show

Today, I was one of three New York City public school teachers interviewed by Leonie Haimson, executive director of the organization Class Size Matters, for the WBAI-FM radio show “Talk Out of Schools.” We spoke about the challenges they face with remote learning, what grading policies should be in place this year, and how schools should be reconfigured next year to improve students’ academic and social-emotional outcomes.

I spoke about the need to reduce class sizes and provide more support for teachers and students so that we can build meaningful working relationships with students. In a remote learning environment, teachers can’t adequately read students’ work well, so modifying instruction to meet their needs is extremely difficult. The episode is available as a podcast at .
