Hello, and welcome to Episode 121 of the Planning Period Podcast, part of the OnPodcastMedia Network. I’m your host, Brad Shreffler.

This week on the show I am joined by Kim Edmondson. Kim is a social studies and English teacher, and soon to be PhD student at the University of Alberta. She focused her research in her Master’s program on the impact of the #MeToo movement on education. I heard her on a couple episodes of The Ed Podcast with Shane Lawrence, and knew I wanted to talk to her for my show.

Kim and I talk about the connections and disconnects between K-12 and post-secondary education, the assumptions and biases in curriculum documents, the problems with the customer service model of education, why the #MeToo movement is so important to teach and learn, the importance of examining the structures that create a problem,

So, sit back and enjoy Episode 121 of the Planning Period Podcast, my interview with Kim Edmondson.
