School Attendance, IRIS, and Faculty of Color

Co-hosts Greta Anderson and Gale Seiler aired together three stories about education. Kathy Hansen, Director of School, Community and Media Relations for the Ames Community School District, and Melissa Asklof, an Americorps Vista member, spoke about Attendance Awareness month. Kay Puttock interviewed Del Christensen, Executive Director of Iowa Resources for International Service (IRIS) about international student exchanges. Julio Cammarota, from the ISU School of Education, and Lerona Lewis, from McGill University in Montreal, brought attention to the hostile reactions faculty of color often face, particularly when they teach about race in their courses, and how this is often evident in negative, racialized comments on course evaluations.
