As TikTok has exploded so has the presence of educator influencers. In today's episode, our host Marnetta takes a deep look at the role of influencers in education. Our guests Arielle, known as Mrs. Frazzled on social media, and Miss Redacted gained fame on TikTok where they've shared their humorous takes on what goes on in the classroom, as well as commentary on important issues. They have also started their own podcast, Teacher Quit Talk, centered on why teachers are leaving the classroom. In this conversation, they discuss what roles and responsibilities teacher influencers have to their audience, to equity, and to educators everywhere.

It’s not in question that educational efforts need more funding; the question is what to do with that funding when it’s received. In today’s episode, Marnetta talks to one returning guest, Sarintha Stricklin, director of the Jefferson Early Childhood Network in Louisiana, and Jen Roberts, CEO of Agenda for Children. They’re going to talk about using funding, both how they’ve done it previously and what their vision is for the future. Listen to the episode to hear what Sarintha and Jen have to say about what leaders should do when they’re receiving education-specific funds, the successful investments they’ve seen and been part of, and their ideas for issues like retention and compensating educators.

Quality Rating and Improvement Systems (QRIS) can play a powerful role in supporting providers, improving children’s experiences, and helping families make informed choices. However, numerous studies across states show that QRIS may not be working as intended. Sadly, it might actually be perpetuating inequities and White-dominant cultural norms at the expense of marginalized groups. Applications for the Preschool Development Grant Birth-5 (PDG B-5) are estimated to open in early September. With this funding comes the opportunity to create lasting change by creating alternative models of continuous quality improvement. Using powerful visuals and real-world state examples, we explore how to knock down QRIS structures, use PDG B-5 funds to rebuild a stronger and more equitable system, and advocate for lasting change.
