In today’s episode we take our first periodical dive into the history of education. In one of the courses I teach, we do a unit about the history of public education in the US, and I get asked lots of questions by my students about education in other places, and at other times. As a result, it is only fitting to use this podcast as an excuse to find out more. So today, we are going back in time. Way back to the dawn of civilization, to find out if there was any formal education in the ancient world?

This podcast is a proud member of Edjacent, a design collaborative made up of educators who dream of a better world for our students and their teachers. We create, write, talk, teach and learn about the things that matter most in education. To find out more, point your browser to www.edjacent.org.

For me, it’s the stories of teachers, students, and school communities that matter. As such, this podcast is only possible with the help and support of its listeners.
