How to Change the Education System, with Suzanne Demallie
39 Plays1 year ago
The education system can change top-down, or bottom-up. Author Suzanne DeMallie wrote “Can You Hear Me Now?” – a book about how parents and teachers might change our schools from the bottom-up. She draws on her own experiences in Baltimore County Public Schools as an elementary math teacher from 2011 to 2019, a parent of children in BCPS, and an advocate for sound enhancement technology in classrooms across the country. She also talks about how COVID has affected her opinions on testing, 1-to-1 device policies for elementary schools, and more.
