S2E7: The Impact of Funding

What happens when one topic or subject can be highly variable in how it’s taught or absorbed — and what does that look like when we mix in funding into education.

We’ve been toying with this question as we’ve traveled the world and found that we have … less than great responses when confronted with alternative perspectives to international politics, wars, and cultural clashes. (#shoutout to our Sunni-Shia episode from season 1 when we tried this irl)

We talked to someone who has experienced first-hand some of the changes in how topics are taught based on where your education is funded from.

An example we referenced: The VOX video on The Rape of Nanking: https://www.facebook.com/Vox/videos/701998029987802/
