Well, we are no longer teenagers. That is to say, this Cast of Dads episode has pushed us out of the terrible teens and we now are almost at drinking age. And, I think that drinking was on our minds when we recording Episode #20 of Cast of Dads. I personally had just woken up from a nap, Daddy Brad was at the pool with his kids, and the rest of the COD gang were raring to head off to dinner, drinks and family.
In this episode, we had a listener-submitted comment and question, specifically from a teacher who had some information to provide regarding a topic on a previous episode where we discussed the future of typing vs. touching (a screen) and how our children are learning differently. Schools were definitely on the top of our minds as well, especially since Jeff Sass was the first of us to have a college graduation (I have two minor graduations coming up: kindergarten and 5th grade). Things got a bit heated when we talked about whether schools should grade kids or simply provide materials for someone else to assess. We all agree that teachers should be paid a whole lot more. But we didn’t stop there…
