Second Acts podcast series logo

Keeping the attention of students during lectures has always been hard. And after COVID-19 disruptions that meant years of Zoom teaching, many professors say things are harder now.We’ve been exploring this rise in student disengagement — and what creative professors are doing to counteract it — in a three-part podcast series.

Bootstraps: Merit, Myths and Education

There’s a longstanding tradition of prizing “merit” in deciding which students get access to the best educational opportunities in America. The narrative goes that a merit-based system allows anyone “to pull themselves up by their bootstraps” to land a slot in a selective public magnet school or an elite college. But does the current system achieve equality? Are there potentially better—or at least fairer—ways to allocate educational opportunity? This 6-episode podcast series explores those questions through in-depth reporting and compelling audio storytelling. See full details here, and look for new installments of this occasional series on the EdSurge Podcast feed.
