We're back again! This week I'm excited to share a conversation with our friend Shea Swauger about the prison to school pipeline of ed tech. We delve into a few topics surrounding the two-way commerce of discrimination in education, from the intentional to the unintentional. The idea of the school to prison pipeline, a concept of how certain policies (see: zero tolerance) interfere with the education of students of color and put them on the path to incarceration, but schools also import technology and policies developed or perfected in prisons into their classrooms and courses. This is a difficult -- but extremely important -- topic that Shea was kind enough to discuss with us. The show notes this week are copious with an amazing amount of resources, so please, dive in!
