New PBS News Hour Video Report On The Impact Of Flint Water On Children

Today’s PBS News Hour aired this depressing report today, the same day that the former Detroit schools emergency manager was charged with felonies for his role in the Flint water crisis.

You can’t find too many others who have been responsible for that level of damage in two separate communities.

You might also be interested in my series of eleven posts sharing info on the Flint tragedy.

Very Useful NY Times Video Series On Implicit Bias


The New York Times has published a series of short and very accessible videos helping people understand implicit bias.

You see the entire series here, and I’ve embedded the first one below.

These are excellent for many classes, and I’ll certainly be using it in my IB Theory of Knowledge classes, especially when we study perception.

I’m adding this info to A Collection Of Advice On Talking To Students About Race, Police & Racism.

Video: “REFUGE: Human stories from the refugee crisis”

This new film is quite powerful. It’s long – twenty minutes – but excerpts could certainly be shown to students as part of a lesson on the world’s refugee crisis.

I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About World Refugee Day.
