When Michael Tyler’s son came to him with a story of schoolyard bullying, he knew this would require more than the standard “keep your chin up” advice. His son had been confronted with a racial epithet and Tyler wanted an illustrative way to explain why that’s never appropriate behavior-from anyone. So he wrote his own book. The Skin You Live In is 10 years old this year, and the author says it’s re-emerging as an important option for parents and teachers to pass on. He details why he thinks the message is different. Also, we talk Stop. Reset. - Goodman's latest.
We discuss whether or not the private school system is impeding the progression of public schools by providing an alternative to fixing them. And we talk about the Chicago Fire and how their management, or lack thereof, may be sinking an already losing team.
