#BaltimoreUprising: School Teacher Ditches Lesson Plan and Gives Students Class on Social Justice and Freddie Gray

On yesterday’s program, Steven Singer, 8th grade school teacher from western Pennsylvania and member of the Badass Teachers Association, joined Rick to talk about how Pennsylvania Republicans are attacking teachers during Teachers Appreciation Week and what he did when his students came into class talking about Baltimore and Freddie Gray.

Singer had to options.  Ignore what the students were talking about or ditch the lesson plan and give them a lesson in social justice.  He picked the latter of the two.  You can listen to Steven’s interview HERE.
