I just listened to this and I was amazed at how closely it mirrored what I've been writing over the last week. Privilege is definitely a real thing, but for some reason we're constantly being told it looks different than it does. If there's nothing we can do, we're all doomed, but thankfully a good portion of the kind of privilege that will do the most good can be created in one generation.

Sorry, I'm really not trying to spam this thread with my own stuff, but I'll leave it here anyway because it's right on point.

It would be great to have a conversation with those disenfranchised with the edu establishment up in Canada. THere's lot's of us up here who want to get more choice going based on what our own kids have experienced throughout their 13 years in the public system. Mine ended up having their schooling disrupted 4 times through strike action...all impacting their extracurriculars and disrupting exam schedules. It's been captured by special interest groups and our kids are suffering.

Try reading what some of our Canadian counterparts are saying, and what we need to do about it. Start with Paul then puhleeze...let's get some Canadian content going eh? https://www.mqup.ca/state-of-the-system--the-products-9780228000846.php
