Did you know that the Noah Webster Educational Foundation has not one, but TWO new podcasts? 

Every Monday, we bring you a new episode of The State of Education with Melvin Adams, a talk-show-style podcast designed to take you behind the scenes of American education. Our host Melvin interviews experts across the country about the latest issues impacting our schools, solutions to today’s controversies, and ways we can all band together to reclaim education for our kids. 

We also have a blogcast, where you can listen to our best blog posts on audio. Subscribe now to get new episodes every week!

In this week’s episode of The State of Education, we draw from our interview archives to introduce you to Tom McCracken—Virginia pastor, military veteran, educator, husband, and father. Tom recently completed his doctorate in education. His thesis focuses on how peer intervention can reliably reduce America’s bullying epidemic. 

In part one of this two-part series, Tom shares his insight into the school system from the vantage point of his life work. Tom and Melvin discuss the adversarial inner workings of many school administrations, how parents’ views on education have changed since COVID, and the best way to create bridges into the classroom.
