2020 has been a year unlike any other–a global pandemic, critical presidential election, nation-wide protests of the horrific police killings of black men and women. And, always, at the intersection of these events, is education and our students. thinkLaw Founder and CEO Colin Seale has written on many such events this year for various publication outlets such as Forbes and The 74. Colin’s articles always boil down to one thing: pushing for educational equity by means of critical thinking, and how achieving that equity can change things for future generations and our world. Check out our top five picks of his articles from 2020 here:
1. “The Inherently Political Problem of Policing Political Speech in the Classroom” via Teach for America Colin explores why the idea of “no politics in the classroom” doesn’t work because, at it’s core, education is inherently political, and also describes why enforcing this idea does a disservice to educators and students.
