The "Monitoring Students" Lesson

Should schools monitor student’s social media to help prevent school shootings and suicides, or is that an invasion of privacy? Also, we like to think schools are making progress when it comes to being inclusive. But the tragic story of a nine year old who came out as gay reminds us we may not have come as far as we want. Those stories plus “Kids These Days”.

Also, the surprising trend of students bullying themselves online.

The "Learning Styles" Lesson

Recent research claims that learning styles are actually totally fake...our teachers say not so fast. Plus, students in America are politically fired up, but does that mean they'll vote in the fall? One school already has a statistically proven impact on student voting rates and we talk with them. All that and "Kids These Days" on this week's episode!
