The past week teachers in Chicago have been on strike. What makes this strike particularly interesting is their demands. BEFORE they discuss their own pay and benefits, teachers are demanding that various issues related to student welfare are addressed, including hiring librarians, nurses and other staff which many schools in the city lack.

Earlier in 2019 Steve Discourse and Jay Calli explored these complex issues and we thought this would be a perfect time to revisit some of our conversations. Here we have interviews with teacher Brandon Frye, and school psychologist Jasmine Fassett. Student success is tied to SO MUCH more than just teachers presenting material, and these two AMAZING educators help us dig deep into the needs, obstacles and best practices to benefit the WHOLE student.

As always your reviews, likes, and shares help us A LOT to get exposure to new listeners! Find us on IG @SteveDiscourse (twitter too) and @itsJayCalli.

It takes a lot of time and money to produce this show, so if you’re feeling love for us, go to to become a supporter, or bless us through CashApp and Venmo @WTDpod! Thank you!!!!!
