Fake News
[ feyk-nooz, nyooz ]
Noun
False news stories, often of a sensational nature, created to be widely shared or distributed for the purpose of generating revenue, or promoting or discrediting a public figure, political movement, company, etc.
 
How can we (and how can we lead our kids to) identify credible news sources and information in order to think critically, make decisions, and form opinions in a world where Fake News is so readily available?

Neil has also worked at The Miami Herald, The Washington Post, The Dallas Morning News, the Belo Corporation, the Tom Joyner Morning Show, and The American Society of Newspaper Editors.

The One About Critical Race Theory and K-12 Education

Critical Race Theory or CRT has become a hot-button issue and a concern for many parents of K-12 students in the United States.  Six states (Idaho, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Iowa, and New Hampshire) have passed laws and nearly 20 additional states have introduced or plan to introduce similar legislation to regulate how race is discussed in the classroom.  In this episode, our guests defined CRT, talked about it’s origins, and discussed what our nation’s students are being taught in schools about race and our country’s history with racism.
