Parent? Concerned about school reopening? Answer depends on race | Africa’s 7th nation is failing: Mali | Hajj begins
Carmen talks today with Susan Mattingly, a public school teacher in Detroit, about the particular challenges her students face during COVID closures – and if schools don’t fully reopen. They also discuss the math and sociology of predictive policing. Carmen shares some ideas for churches in communities where schools are not offering a normal schedule of in person supervised classes. After the show, others directed Carmen’s attention to more examples.
In the second half, Ruth Kramer returns with news from Christian mission partners around the world. The conversation focuses on the failing state of Mali, Africa’s 7th largest country. They also discuss research recently released by Barna on how emerging generations think differently about missions and they discuss the 2020 Hajj which started yesterday in Saudi Arabia.
