“Fraying at the Edges” with Dr. Jon Young
In our seventh episode of Public Good, Shannon and Stephen are joined by Dr. Jon Young.
Dr. Jon Young is currently the Acting Department Head of the Department of Educational Administration, Foundations & Psychology in the Faculty of Education, at the University of Manitoba. His research interests include: school boards in Canada, internationalization of education, education funding, and fundraising. His areas of specialization are: Educational Administration, Public Governance & Education Policy.
In this episode, we speak to Dr. Young about the core values of public schooling. We also ask Dr. Young how broader public understandings of public education as a public good have changed over time. The episode offers specifics example from the Manitoba context—one that we think will give our listeners some hope about public action against government reforms. Anyone who had a “Kill Bill 64” sign on their lawn will want to listen to this episode—and so will anyone who does not know that means!
