In this episode of The Filter podcast, you’ll hear from Annie Watson, who uses her expertise in early childhood education (and as a parent of four) to share insight about lessons learned during the past year. Watson adds context to education statistics and what the pandemic taught us about the lack of support for working parents like herself.
Host Ieshia Downton also recounts her parenting journey, from pregnancy in the early days of the pandemic to homeschooling chronicles. Kansas City School District Superintendent Mark Bedell and digital campaigner at ParentsTogether PaKou Her also chimes in.
