Customer Reviews


I unsubscribed when they baselessly attacked an Arabic school in NYC, trying to paint it as some kind of terror camp. By that stage they had lowered standards in an attempt to liven up content, with the inclusion of some kind of weekly tirade or weekly rant segment.

Problems with the download

when try to download, says not a valid url and thus unable to get access to programs. started in last week or so. any suggestions?


I have found this podcast to be lively, informative, and balanced. The world of education produces more than enough wild and wacky "reforms" to merit reporting, and concern where warranted.
