PT 423: “There’s no incentive to learn in education”… “What did you say?”

Paul and Tootle talk about an AP report that shows Americans are deeply divided over how much children in K-12 schools should be taught about racism and sexuality, according to a new poll from the University of Chicago Harris School of Public Policy and The AP-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. Overall the country thinks that curriculum in these areas should be slightly expanded but there are definite cleavages between Republicans and Democrats. In context, the AP reports that Republican pollsters are finding that what started as a gripe over virtual learning has turned into a heated concern over what’s being taught.
