The Jackson Katz interview was so amazing to hear. I work as a community educator with our local domestic violence/sexual assault shelter. I am in the classrooms 4 days a week doing bully programs and healthy relationships programs. I was so glad to hear Jackson Katz express using technology in combination with curriculum. I love to use music videos, news info, movie clips, etc. when I speak to kids. They learn so much more and it just helps them to “get it.” However, at our state level it seems most do not agree. I cannot wait till our next meeting to have Mr. Katz as my backup with what I am seeing on a daily basis.
