Hear about the corporate takeover of our schools this week on the Heartland Labor Forum, Thursday at 6pm, rebroadcast Friday at 5am.


Trauma and adversity exposure disrupts most urban school systems. Trauma Sensitive Schooling prepares an entire school to counter the disruption. Beth Sarver, who coordinates Truman Medical Center’s Resilience Incubator, describes the trauma spectrum and how mindful teaching and learning harness the native resilience in all of us.

In the aftermath of a racial stereotyping controversy surrounding the film “Get Hard,” Susan and Russ take a look back at the recent civil rights flick, “Selma.”
