Three Miles

There’s a program that brings together kids from two schools. One school is public and in the United States’ poorest congressional district. The other is private and costs $43,000/year. They are three miles apart.

The hope is that kids connect, but some of the public school kids just can’t get over the divide. We hear what happens when you get to see the other side and it looks a lot better.

The podcast is audio only and comes in two complementary halves of about 20 minutes.

ED- I’d very much like our patrons to hear this first and then I’ll write my lived experience – this time in Australia – but at a time when education was far more than just preparing young minds for a job and a life on the treadmill.
