#1366: "A Substitute's Story"

Is there a more thankless job in the world than being a substitute teacher? OK, there probably are a lot them but you have to admit walking into a room with 20 to 30 middle school kids looking to make the next 50 minutes of your life miserable doesn’t sound like a party. Today on the Best of Our Knowledge, we’ll talk to someone who became of substitute and wrote a book about it.

We’ll also hear about a native American woman’s experiences in boarding school, head to Spain to visit a school for bullfighters, and we’ll spend an academic minute hearing about what all the cool kids are probably really not doing.
