In this episode we're discussing how students and teachers are using their voices through actions such as the global climate change protests #Fridaysforfuture, teachers striking in Zimbabwe and the USA and head teachers in England writing to parents about devastating cuts to education.
We recorded this two weeks ago so our date reference is slightly off, but nevertheless we hope you enjoy the discussion!
Our favourite strike slogan from marches around the world: "Teachers deserve fair pay, because students deserve teachers who stay".
We also recommend some great books following World Book Day that we think you should check out:
On the Come Up by Angie Thomas
The Burning by Laura Bates
Brave, not Perfect by Reshma Saujani
10% Braver: Inspiring Women to Lead Education by the #WomenEd community, edited by Vivienne Porritt and Keziah Featherstone.
We also learn that Alice like to listen to Taylor's Swift's song 'Fifteen' to get herself into the teenage psyche on the first day of every term!
