Is it Time to Cancel Teach Like a Champion?

Teach Like a Champion, the best-selling guide to effective teaching by Doug Lemov, has sold millions of copies. But a growing group of critics charge that Lemov’s approach is racist and embodies “carceral” pedagogy.

Special guests: Ilana Horn, Joe Truss and Layla Treuhaft-Ali.  Complete transcript available here. The financial support of listeners like you keeps this podcast going.
