Charting a Path On Education w/@mollyknefel — #KatieSpeakShow Ep58 10/15/2016

In brief: My guest is the awesome Molly Knefel who is on to talk one of her favorite topics: what exactly is going on with the privatization of our schools. She’s an expert on a number of levels and I’m really excited to bring you an extended conversation with her that starts at the 101 “what is a charter school?” level and then on to more.

I also threw my two cents in on the “Trump tapes” and how the kind of sexual harassment and assault he describes unapologetically affects more than just our internal monologues/wellbeing. It affects our ability to negotiate public spaces, our jobs, etc.

Note: This show is available to stream and download for free so it can be accessible for everyone. If you’re able, consider becoming a supporter for as little as $1/month at PATREON or making a one-time donation at Thank you!
